Bumps on tongue


I noticed a little cluster of bumps towards the back of my tongue earlier while I was in the middle of brushing my teeth. I brush my tongue as well and when I tried this time around I noticed a little pain and that's when I discovered the bumps. My throat has been sore as well, but I've never had, or should I say noticed, any bumps with sore throats I've had in the past.

Should I be concerned about the bumps, or are they just something that has to do with my throat being sore and me having a mild sinus infection?

Re: Bumps on tongue

My husband gets bumps on his tongue when he chews cinnamon gum. His tongue also gets a little swallon and hurts. We have determined he is allergic to it. Have you been using a new brand of toothpaste? If so you might be allergic to it, maybe use a new brand. Hope this helps.

Re: Bumps on tongue

I have bumps all over the back of my tongue. They aren't painful, you might have accidentally scraped them too hard with your toothbrush.
i know for some people they are normal. I don't know why but some people are born with them and some people don't have them at all.
Nothing to worry about.
