Hi, you may be suffering from a viral infection. Viral infections usually lead to inflammation of papillae enlarging them. The throat symptoms that you have mentioned also suggest of the viral cause. Please consult a good ENT surgeon for complete examination and treatment. Warm saline gargles or Betadine gargles may provide symptomatic relief along with proper medication.
