Red bumps on back, side of tongue, dry throat. Feels like circumvallate papillae. Treatment?

For the past week I have noticed red bumps on the side of my tongue and also towards the back of my tongue...perhaps circumvallate papillae....they do not hurt...tongue feels thicker and I don t have a problem swallowing but just feels like I would...also throat is dry. Where did this come from? How to treat it? gargle with saltwater?

Welcome to health care magic forum.

I have read your concern.

The red bumps on tongue may have occurred due to - APHTHOUS STOMATITIS.

I would suggest you to avoid spicy foods,betel nut chewing.

Nutritional supplements like vitamin b complex as well as Folic acid has to be administered.

Corticosteroids are usually administered in such cases.

Meanwhile,avoid anxiety,stressful jobs.

Hope this helps.
