What does a blister on the uvula indicate?

This question is going to sound so weird because it is. I had a colonoscopy today and was fine going in; all went well until I came to in my room. I had a bad sore throat, coughing, burises on my tongue that I noticed when I got home. Also noticed a blister on the tip end of my uvula? I have been really cold as well. Thx

Hi Dear,

As per your query you have blisters on uvula which is because of bacterial/ viral infection which sometimes spread in the tissues around the tonsils and produce pus. Reduced immunity of body is major cause for this. I would suggest you to do warm saline gargles. Drink hot milk with half spoon of turmeric powder. Take Advil or Tylenol for pain and swelling. Consult ENT specialist for proper examination. Doctor may order blood test or throat swab test.Doctor may prescribe antibiotics course (penicillin or amoxicillin) for at least 10 days, antiviral drug like acyclovir or anti allergic drug depending upon the diagnosis. Taker diet rich in vitamin C. Apply lignocaine containing gel if it is painful. Apply dologel on these blisters. Maintain proper oral hygiene.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
