Past few days, my tongue has been white and sore and roof of mouth near my throat has a few bumps and are also sore. What could my problem be?

Dr. can check throat. New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep). Little ulcers on the throat could be viral, such as Hand Foot Mouth disease.
