I have blisters on the back of my tounge and I have several ulcers and tiny yellow spots on, under and through out my mouth. I have dentures UPPER & lower and it hurts to have my lower dentures in. It feels like my mouth is on fire

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Unfortunately you can indeed get shingles in or around the mouth. But it doesn't sound like you have a diagnosis - you also have some severe canker sores. Make an appointment with your doctor. I hope you heal soon, this sounds very painful and uncomfortable.
