Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
The blisters on your throat was granular pharyngitis, those are the enlarged lymphoid follicles. Cold sore on the tongue and gums could be canker sores. You need to take multivitamins along with the antibiotics, drink plenty of water. You will be alright, any more doubts you are welcome.
