Cardiologist 's  Response
If it is not bacterial infection, it could be viral infection, allergy or mechanical irritation.
The 'back of tongue bumps' may be the normally present circumvallate papille , now more obvious from the insult
Avoid hot and spicy food. Simple salt solution gargling and antiseptic throat lozenges may help.
They should go in about a week or so. If not, you should see your doctor again and investigate
Good luck
