I live in the USA, and I do not have health insurance.

Monday I ate hot Chinese food. Maybe I burned my mouth? That evening I noticed this large, swollen thing under my tongue, coming off that rough area that I guess are salivary glands or something? You know, the pocket-like folds of skin under the tongue, I don't know what that's called. But it's like, coming off one of those. Here it is from Monday:

It was not painful or anything. Next, here it is today, on Friday. It is a small, hard thing now, and has shrunken to 1/4 its original size.

Is this the normal lifespan of a sudden blister from eating hot food? I've experienced this on the roof of my mouth, but never under the tongue.

Thanks, and I'm scared.
