What do blisters in the throat indicate?

I have blisters lining the back of my throat. It started yesterday. I have gotten blisters many times before. It normally goes away in a day but, this time it didn t. I woke up this morning feeling horrible. The blisters and orange-ish and red-ish. It hurts to talk and swallow. I have a temperature of 99.4-5. The pain only stops when I m either eating or drinking. I haven t gotten a flu shot and I am kinda freaking out.

What is your age?

It may be due to Herpangina in children or herpes infection or apthous ulcers. Until examination is done it, is difficult to say what it is.

Use salt water gargling and water vapour inhalation. Use soft diet and avoid alcohol and smoking.

Use mucopain gel locally, and if symptoms not improved, please consult your doctor, he/she will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
