hello and welcome to HCM,

Some amount of cough after a flu is common and if that is the only symptom then you do not have anything to worry about. Just wait for a week or two and it will definitely subside. If it does not subside then see an ENT for the same. The small bumps on the back of the tongue are follicles and papillae which can become big when theres infection. Even they will settle in a week or two.

Meanwhile take lots of warm fluids, do not strain when you speak and avoid cold air

wishing you a speedy recovery
