You can have ENT consultation as seeing red bumps is actually normal but just to rule out that there is no disease.
there are many taste buds over the tongue which seems to be red bumps.
If you feel sore then you must get teeth examined for caries and maintain proper oral hygiene by doing gargles daily.
You must also take care that you do not have acidity or heart burn ie reflux disease for that take---
Antacid tablet
Syp. antacid gel 2 tsf two times a day half an hour before meals
multivitamin twice daily
Keep head end of bed elevated.
Avoid alcohol, Smoking
Do brisk walking daily
Go for walk after dinner
Avoid spicy food     
Avoid late night coffee
follow up after 7 days.
