Dont worry: These are lymph nodes and you need not to worry much about them. Avoid spicy and oily food and add multicitamin and it should go away in a few weeks. Good luck. ...Read more

What does it mean if the back of the tongue is white with little red dots?

Normal: The red dots are taste buds but an accumulation of "white" material on the back of the tongues means you're not cleaning your tongue properly. After brushing use a tongue scrapper to remove the white plaque from the back of your tongue. ...Read more
