Red bumps on back of throat? Is it normal? Is because of allergies? N I also have red bumps all the way back of my tongue.

Possibly: Red bumps in the back of the throat or "cobblestoning" are lymphoid patches and is a normal response of the immune system probably to post nasal drip from the sinuses +/- allergies. Most likely the bumps on the back of your tongue are actually specialized taste buds and are normal. Most people never notice them.

My friend have red bumps in the back of his throat what could this be?

Red Bumps in throat: Red bumps in the back of the throat could represent a number of different things. If they are asymptomatic they could be small swollen or irritated glands that live in the mucus membrane, could be tonsil tissue, or other "immune" system tissue. If there are symptoms they could be related to infection. In rare cases (and with typical risk factors they could be growths that need a biopsy) - see dr.

I have red bumps at the back of my throat? Could that be strep? Or do they have to be white bumps?

I have red bumps at the back of my throat? Could that be strep? Or do they have to be white bumps?

Get checked.: You don't have to have white patches to have strep. Red bumps can be due to strep or to other things, too. But if you have a sore throat it is always a good idea to get checked for strep to be safe. Strep gets better without treatment, but if it is not treated, you can get rheumatic heart disease and other complications. Get seen. Better safe that sorry.

Red bumps everywhere in the back of my throat, could it be cancer?

Unlikely: You need to get a physician to examine your throat before you can be certain as to what these lesions are. Cancer in the throat, if present will cause a growth, or a tumor or an ulcer which does not heal for more than 4 weeks. It does not look like you have anything like that! . So you could watch it for a few weks to se if it resolves or go see your doctor if you are still concerned.

I've had strep throat throughout my life. Right now there are red bumps in the back of my throat but they are not white. Had it for 3 days so far.

Chronic tonsillitis: May be associated with seasonal allergies, chronic sinusitis and possible even tonsil "stones". It is not fun to be sick all the time and be on antibiotics half a year, So, Although it is a painful, "bloody" surgery as an Adult I would consider having an ENT take a look to see if you are a candidate for elective removal of tonsils and adenoids.

Cobble stoning: Asymptomatic red bumpy throat is often related to normal but inflamed lymphatic patches in the pharynx. This is common in people with allergies, however is also seen in infections (viral and bacterial). Papilloma (warts) can also present there. Smokers need to be more cautious though due to various throat cancers. See your physician with symptoms, growth or simply confirmation.
