Red taste buds at the tip of my tounge, just noticed them after rinsing my mouth with salt water and mouth wash for a couple days. What is this?

In brief: Could be normal

It is not uncommon to have small asymptomatic red bumps on the tongue tip.
If there is no pain or taste disturbance then just observe.

In brief: Red taste buds norma

The tongue is normally covered with red taste buds.
It is possible that something in the mouthwash irritated your tongue and caused inflammation.
