Every so often I have just one white bump pop up on my tongue and then goes away a day or too after. what could this be? they dont hurt or anything, just wondering what they are and how I can get rid of them. thanks.

Re: white bump on tongue???

This is most likely NOT STD related. Oral STD's are fairly uncommon to start with, and don't come and go like you describe.

Obviously the best choice would be to see a dentist. If the bumps appear in different places, they are probably inflamed taste buds, which are pretty benign.

It's kinda like a blister or pimple, but it cant be popped. just seems like dead skin or something.

probably just a canker sore or something. you might get them often if you're sick or smoke cigarettes.

Yeah, doesn't sound like an std. I get those too, tiny white bumps that are hard. I notice I usually get them when I'm stressed out. Definitely not an std, nothing to be worried about.
