What is this

Okay so this started about a month and a half ago. On the left side of the back of my tongue I started to feel slight pain and tenderness. Then after I couple days I took a look and I had a bunch of reddish bumps and imflamation. Eventually the same happened to the right side but the tenderness on that side came and went even though the bumps are still present but nothing compared to the left side. I went to a dentist and he told me it's probably nothing but referred me to an oral surgeon. So at that time I scheduled an appointment with the surgeon but it was about a month wait so in the mean time I went to an ENT which he told me"it's nothing" "probably just a fungal infection" so he prescribed me antibiotics. So 2 weeks went by and the bumps and pain were still present. I just got back from my appointment with the oral surgeon and he told me there's nothing too alarming but if it doesn't get better in 2 weeks he may choose to perform a biopsy. So can anybody help me out a bit in the mean time. I'm a 22 year old male who lives a healthy lifestyle and I have great oral hygiene. My only reason to be scared is I was a smokeless tobacco user from the age of 14-20. Again I'm not expecting a diagnosis on here I just wanted to get a little clarity on what I could be dealing with.
