Red small lesions tongue

I am getting red small lesions mainly on the tip of my tongue and the sides of the tongue also feels reddish. Also, the back side of my upper jaw (the part a bit behind the upper cluster of teeth) feels a bit swelly. Is it something to worry about? Smoking for past few months with an average of 5-6 cigarettes a day.
