Probably not hsv: The symptoms of oral herpes are painful blisters, or ulcerations on your lips or the inside of your mouth. Herpes does not cause any lesions on the tongue. Make sure to brush your teeth regularly and consider seeing a doctor for the other symptoms as it could be a sign of another infection
