Are white bumps on the tongue indicative of oral HPV?
Kindly upload image
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern.
Perhaps you have enlarged circumvallate papillae.
I request you to kindly upload an image in "Reports Section" so that I am able to guide you better.
Swollen taste buds
Thank you. The images are not very sharp. They are blurred. You may upload more good quality ones, if possible.
I think they are just enlarged tongue papillae - swollen taste buds, perhaps due to inflammation from sore throat.
I suggest you to do antiseptic mouth washes and take a B Complex vitamin supplement, once daily.
