Hello all. i previously posted this topic as a GUEST but it did not go through so i am posting again as a MEMBER.

5 days ago I began to get clear blisers on my gums that quickly popped. The section of skin under the blister became very fragile and peeled off. Progressively, my whole mouth became under attack and soon the skin was seperating on my cheecks, throat and now my lips. After the skin peels off a white layer of skin covers the delicate region and it is very rarely the aftermath of a blister (it just spreads). Now it has spread to my lips where about 75% of the skin is white and it seems to be moving to the external parts on my lips. The pain is extreme and basically feels like a mouth full of blisters.

I was diagnosed with fever blisters as i have recently recovered from the flu. But my understanding, from reading on the internet is that fever blisters are quite scarce and do not spread through the whole mouth. The seem more like a cancer sore.

I had this once before three years ago and at that time i had no previous illness like the flu. Last time it was also much more mild, and went away quicker.

Any insight to this problem would be greatly apprecated.
I am a 23 year old male if that is of any help.
