Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
you could have oral herpes cold sore blisters on your tongue which can cause painful white blisters or these could be aphthous ulcers on your tongue.
this is caused by a viral infection.
oral gel is a numbing medication.
you need to see a doctor to get a prescription for acyclovir antiviral pills to help fight off this viral infection.
also you need a prescription viscous lidocaine based mouth wash to help numb up your tongue to decrease pain.
you have to see a doctor at the ER or urgent care center to get these prescriptions before tomorrow
let me know if you have questions.
