My 11 year old son has a few bumps on the back of his tongue and its painful. He doesn't have fever or cough or sorethroat? What should I do?

My 11 year old son has a few bumps on the back of his tongue and its painful. He doesn't have fever or cough or sorethroat? What should I do?

Not likely related: The normal tongue has many little bumps and they are larger toward the back of the tongue (special tastebuds)--see picture. The sorethroat he has likely is not related to these bumps. It could be just a viral pharyngitis (viral throat infection may not be red/swollen) and not needing treatment beyond symptom control with motrin/sorethroat spray etc...If symptoms worsen, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
