I have a red sore under my tongue, near my back tooth. It hurts to swallow and talk as well. There is also a white patch in my throat near it. ?

In brief: You get them often?

Aphateous ulcer or canker sore almost always starts as a red spot then white patchy or develops a tingling or burning sensation before any other symptoms are obvious.
If you have a canker sore, your mouth will feel painful. Usually heals on its own within 10 to 14 days. To be sure see your doctor or dentist.
