My tongue has like a white/yellow tint to it. And there are small red bumps towards the back.. It burns to touch and my throat hurts. What is this?

In brief: Coated tongue

Your tongue may be coated due to an infection which can sometimes be caused by a yeast or virus.
It is very important that you see your doctor to determine the actual cause of your infection so that the appropriate treatment can be initiated.

Try a tongue scrapper to remove the bacteria living on the tongue also
