HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. The other Experts and I are working on your answer. By the way, it would help us to know:
Have you ever had anything like this before? How large is the blister? Is the blister raised like a small bubble or depressed like a crater?Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can finish answering your question.
Thanks for the additional information. If this is not a raised lesion then two possibilities come to mind.
The first thing is a traumatic lesion from accidentally biting your tongue. However. you would have remembered doing this so I will defer to my second possibility which is a canker sore.
Canker sores usually go away on their own after 7 to 10 days. Some stubborn ones will last longer and if so there are some treatments you can try to help them disappear. Various rinses, topical pastes and/or medications can be used which are outlined here:
No one really knows what causes canker sores to form, but there are several triggers that seem to be related to their onset. They are listed here:
The previous two links are part of a good and thorough artlcel on canker sores which starts here:
I hope this answers your question. If you would like to discuss this further or have any additional questions, please reply to my answer and I will get right back to you.

If you do not feel that my answer was worthwhile, then you don't have to pay. What you are paying for is an onlike opinion on the source of the lesion that is in your mouth. Whether I physically type out the information from another site that is very well organised in presenting different disease processes or just point you in the right direction, a direction that you would not have found without my asking you specific questions regarding your lesion shouldn't matter. If you don't think this is what you have, then we can engage in further discussion to try to get to an answer that you are satisfied with. Otherwise you don't have to pay.
Please look at the links again.
It specifically states that these occour under the tongue and describes that other areas of the mouth that these can appear on as the soft tissues of the mouth.
Canker sores do not appear outside the mouth and these links do not state this.
