Red small pin sized spots on side of tongue that burns

The soft palate in my mouth have become yellowish and i notice small red pin sized dots on the sides ( not tip) of my tongue. I have frequent sore throats and a burning sensation when i swallow. Also my mouth is often dry and has bitterish taste. I dnt smoke or drink so am very concerned as to what could be the problem. Its been a while since i visited my dentist and maybe i need to go n get myself checked but please are there any possibilities to what could be happening here? Thanx for your time.

Hi AnnieKhat this sounds a lot like something I had a few weeks ago which was oral thrush which I developed shortly after having a bout of shingles.. I would visit your doctor and get a proper assessment but the symptoms sound the same as mine. I too haven't visited my dentist for a while but as I am under the doctor for ongoing issues I mentioned it to her. A pharmacist would also be able to give you an idea and maybe there is something you can buy in the chemists if it is a problem getting to see your G.P. soon. Hope you get some relief x
