I have just returned from a holiday with a sore tongue which turned into blisters on my tongue. Then my throat got sore, the glands on my neck and under my chin are swollen and sore and I can hardly swallow. So far just a throat infection I'm assuming.

But now I have got spots around my mouth and one on my lip. They start off red with a black dot in the centre and very quickly scab over, turning white and scabby within a day. They are not itchy and aren't sore unless i press them. Does anyone know what this is and if I should see my GP?
