Mouth ulcers, sometimes called canker sores, are a common affliction. Often they are simply caused by trauma and heal quickly on their own. The recurrent, bothersome form is known as recurrent aphthous stomatitis or simply aphthous ulcers.
Blisters in the mouth are common among children and can also occur in adults.
It is usually a harmless condition, even though it can be unpleasant.
The blisters might appear periodically and disappear by themselves. It is not known what causes them, but they can often be associated with eating sweets and chocolate.
Characteristics- These lesions are almost always found on the "loose" tissues of the mouth; i.e. the cheek, inner lip, tongue, soft palate, floor of mouth, and sometimes the throat. They are usually small, less than one half centimeter in diameter. A reddish halo usually surrounds them. A less common form, major aphthae, can get quite large and take very long to heal. An even rarer form is the herpetiform ulcer, characterized by multiple tiny ulcerations in many parts of the mouth at once, including the firmer gum and palate tissues. Herpetiform ulcers are uncommon and often mistaken for herpes outbreaks (below).
Once you’ve discovered that you have a sore, you know you will be uncomfortable for days to come. Keeping teeth brushed well and using antibacterial mouthwash helps to reduce the frequency of an oral mouth sore, but not much will prevent the onset of a fever blister. The severity of fever blisters can be lessened by getting a prescription for penciclovir, acyclovir or famciclovir as soon as the area begins to tingle or burn in the least. Taking one of these prescription medications immediately will help to reduce the length of time that the fever blister will remain and the severity or size of the blister.

Remedies for mouth blisters
The kind of blister that results from the symptoms that you have described is very common and is nothing to worry about it. You can get burned like when you drink something very hot such as coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. Many people also get such blisters or burns in their mouths, especially on the roof of their mouths, when they eat very hot food like pizza. The best way to deal with mouth blisters like this is to give it some time to heal on its own. Because of how easily an infection can be contracted through food, the mouth is amongst the fastest healing parts of the body.
