Tonsil Blisters
Mar 10, 2002

I have blister-like scars on my tonsils, and a blister under my tongue. my mouth hurts and have a had a constant headache for the past 3 days. are these symptoms of something? could it be caused by eating something wrong, or by smoking excessive amounts of marihuana?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

You could have a number of problems, including herpes infection or aphthous ulcers. I doubt it has anything to do with food or pot. I suggest that you see a dentist or oral surgeon for a definitive diagnosis and treatment.
