White Head on Tongue

I have this thing on the tip of my tongue that looks like a white head - it hurts, but more irritating than anything. is it herpes or just an inflamed taste bud?

TooheyNew: It sounds like a canker sore. Rinse your mouth out with some peroxide.

I get them all the time. Sometimes it depends on what you eat. I have a habit of biting my tongue and these bumps usually appear for 3 or so days afterwards. Nothing to worry about
