What causes dry mouth and blisters on the tongue?

I have had the symptoms below for about a month. I went to my PCP and he gave me a name for what I have and said that all I needed to do to treat is was to gargle w/children s liquid Benadryl. I ve been doing so but I am not any better. Symptoms: Dry mouth, outer layer of skin in my mouth keeps peeling similar to what happens when you burn the roof of your mouth, cannot taste food, blisters on either side of my tongue between tongue and cheek (they come and go), taste buds on my tongue will flare up (only 1 or so at a time) which are painful until they eventually go back down to normal size
