Brief Answer:
It is not from the cough drops

Detailed Answer:
Dear patient,
Thank you for your question and for using Healthcaremagic.
I understand your concern. The white lump may be because of the cold or by an infection that has affected your immune system. I would not worry about this, it will pass after two-four days. Is is not caused by the cough drops or by a swollen taste bud.
I hope I have answered your question. Wish you good health!
