Red bumps on back of my tongue..boyfriend now has them.
Please give any advice you can. I'm freaking out here. I'm a 30 year old woman and I noticed the other day I have some big red bumps on the very back of my tongue. I noticed them a few days after I bit my tongue back there really hard but that the bumps are not in just the place I bit down but all across the back. They are dark red and much bigger than regular taste buds and look like large papillea or maybe even warts? I'm not sure how long theyve been back there. Now yesterday my boyfriend noticed the back of his tongue was a little sore so he looked back there and sure enough he has the same big bumps now.
A little history on me. I just recently got over a mild case of colonitis and my Dr put me on antibiotics which quickly cleared up. I asked my Dr about a small papillea that suddenly popped up on my left buttock and she said they are common no biggie but this was before I noticed what was going on in my mouth.
I'm concerned about this, is this a virus or possiblty an STD? Are these warts or will they go away?
We've been dating 3 months, totally monogamous, before we got intimate we both got blood tests done just to be safe and we both were clean. He hadnt been intimate with anyone for a while since he just got divorced. Because I'm paranoid I got a very specific detailed blood test 30 days later and again, was negative on everything so I'm not concerned about HIV although I'm a little overly paranoid about it. I do have HPV i think but have never had any warts, and only 1 abnormal pap a few years ago, but have had normal ones since.
I did come down with herpes II about 6.5 years ago but have only had 1 breakout since my first and that was a year ago.
Is it possible my HPV spread to the tongue even though I have never had warts?
Can somebody give me some advice? Should I call my Dr or dentist?
