Red spots on tongue with white rings

Can you help me. I have red spots on my tongue - they look like spots. Some of them are sourrounded by thin white rings. They are painful. I've had them for 3 months. They seem to get better and then come back. I noticed them after having oral sex with a new partner. Don't know if tha tis related.

Might be geographic tongue, which is not dangerous.
