White spot on lingual frenulum, some redness and irritation under my tongue. upper neck sore with right side gland by artery swollen for 2 months????

Salivary stone?

Salivary_gland
You may want to have your oral surgeon examine the floor of your mouth for a possible salivary stone. A stone that blocks the end of this salivary duct can cause swelling and tenderness of the gland it drains as well as the floor of the mouth until the stone is removed. Chronic blockage of the flow of saliva can also cause infection of the gland so visit your oral surgeon reasonably soon.

Tongue is swollen.and have red swollen.patches inback.of.tognue my throat feels somewhat sore also?

See a doctor

Neck-throat
The red patches on the back of your tongue may be the lingual tonsils, which would be normal. The important question is why are your tongue swollen and throat sore? For the answer, you need to see a doctor and be examined. There is no way for anyone on a forum such as this to give you an answer.

Did you get a throat culture? If not and symptoms persist, you should get a culture to check for strep throat.

I have a sore throat and cough followed by blister- looking lumps and red spots on tongue, tonsil stones and yellow patches around tonsils and throat.

Sounds infectious

Blistering
With your symptoms you describe, you should be evaluated by a health care provider to determine if you have an infection that may require prescription medication. Good luck.

I have recurring red sores on my tongue I thought they were canker sores and use patches to cover them, but they keep recurring every couple of weeks.

Could be...........

Geographic_tongue
It could be something called geographic tongue, especially if they are not sore or uncomfortable in any way. If it is that, it is benign and nothing to worry about. However, without seeing you personally, there is no way to know and it could be many other conditions. Do not apply anything to your tongue without being advised by a dentist and regardless see your dentist for an accurate diagnosis

Dr. Robert Brodsky answered:

My tongue frenulum is red and sore, what are some possible causes?

Anatomy?

Smoking
Sometimes the frenum is just a little too short. The fix for this is a very minor surgical procedure. Sometimes a habit, smoking, diet, etc can cause this. Have a dentist look at it to determine what should be done.
