Ok, I'm new here and have done some searching around, but haven't found anything specific to my symptoms.

Basically this is what has happened...
I got two cold sores (painful white things where my cheek and gums meet)
After receiving those two sores, a week later, I came down with a nasty 102-103 fever. The fever was consistent for 3.5 days (occasionally breaking and coming back)
On the second day of the fever the sores enlarged, my gums inflamed a bit and became extremely sensitive, my throat also became sore, and I started getting pimples on my tongue (enlarged taste buds?)

I was unable to eat and still am unable to eat due to my mouth being entirely too sensitive. The symptoms are still there, just not as bad during the fever period. It has been one complete week since the fever has completely gone away and I'm a bit worried about what could still be causing these symptoms...
