How to warts on the back of the tongue?

I recently got thrush while in Costa Rica (don't know if that's why) and came home and treated myself with gentian violet and acidophilus and eating yogurt. My tongue has not really felt normal yet-a feeling like I burned it with hot soup that doesn't go away. Now I see what looks like warts on the back of my tongue. What's up? YYYY@YYYY

Thanks for consulting HCM,

Read your query, as you have oral thrush this is fungal infection caused by Candida albican this can be due to stress related , drug induced , dry mouth , habit of smoking or chewing tobacco , medical condition like daibetes or poor oral hygiene .
Dont worry for this burn and thrush I will suggest you to apply ointment like candid gel on tongue , use tongue scraper to clean your tongue , maintain proper oral hygiene , drink water frequently , you can consult your dentist and go for antifungal drug like Nystatin .
I will suggest you to consult oral surgeon for examination of tongue and if needed you can go for Cytology of black area of tongue .

Hope this will help you.
