Taste buds on the tip of the tongue pains.Yellowish and swollen at the tip of tongue. What this could be?

Hello, one of the tastebuds on the tip of my tongue has been hurting for 2 or 3 days now, when I took a good look in the mirror it looked yellow/white-ish and seemed slightly swollen. The pain isn't that bad but still bad enough to be a serious annoyance, I was wondering what it could be or what I could do against it.

Thank you in advance.

The swollen taste buds can result from
-eating very hot food,
- tongue bite
-Acidic food, constipation/depleation of lactobassili from intestines
-psychological stress.
-viral infection
Having a dose of laxative, Folic acid tabs, Application of soothing agent like boroglycerine,pain killers/anti inflammatory drugs can be taken to get the releif.
But what is more needed is patience.
Thank you.
