Lots of bumps on tongue, swollen tonsils and sore throat. What could this be?

Many things. The bumps are probably the normal papillae of the tongue, although without actually seeing it, we can't be absolutely certain of that. The swollen tonsils and sore throat would need to be diagnosed by your physician.

I am experiencing sore throat, throat swelling and swollen tonsils. Was wondering what this could possible be, can provide pictures.

Virtual consult. Would be the way to go if you want to provide pictures and have a virtual physician encounter, can't be done over-here unfortunately.
