See your doctor: We can't properly diagnose nor treat you over the internet. These types of situations require you to see your own physician for a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment, if necessary. What you describe is not typical of oral fungal infections although you may have that in addition to a cold, etc. Call your doctor.
