Blisters after tooth extc

I have had a lower left wisdom tooth extraction 5 days back. However, the cheek muscles around the tooth extraction area or probably the gum itself is having few blisters/canker sours/whitish ulcers since the 3rd day and seriously impacting my food intakes and drinking. I am a smoker and have NOT been smoking since my tooth extraction. It seems the ulcers are more predominant where the anesthesia needle was inserted. Just to let you know, I don't seem to have any pain or complications with my socket. It seems to be filling up though I can see whitish and dull layer around the entire gum. I am done with my antibiotic course which consisted of moxclav 625 and metron forte post extraction. The extraction was probably a normal one as the surgeon took 5-6 mins to get the tooth extracted. Please advise.
