The bumps over the tongue are known as hypertrophied lingual tonsils
. These are the lymphoid follicles just like the tonsils and the lymph nodes. These enlarge during an attack of the infection or any inflammatory conditions of the tongue. You need to drink plenty of warm water, do gargles with povidone iodine
. and take paracetamol
to reduce the pain. If the pain persists consult a good ENT specialist
, the doctor might advice antibiotics for the same.
