White bumps on tongue treatment

Common Questions and Answers about White bumps on tongue treatment


This is so overwhemingly common - yet no doctor will put this puzzle together - at least in my luck. After digging for 5 years - I strongly believe this is a side effect of thyroid medications. I lean towards this bieng an imbalance on PH levels within the body with some individuals. HAve you had any discomfort within the tongue itself? Burning - swolleness of anything you can describe? Do you notice dry throat and thirst? Did you undergo RAI treatment after the TT?
What surface of the tongue are they on? The top part of the tongue, or the underside? Look up pictures of "geographic tongue" because that occurs on the top part of the tongue. If it is on the bottom, it could be some canker sores because they occur on these spots. Either one, it would just be palliative treatment. Use some numbing gel - all your dentist will give you is, at most, a steroid rinse. See if it goes away within 7 days. If it doesn't, then go to your dentist.
I have had white blotchy spots and bumps on my tongue for probably over a month now. They are starting to get painful and I can't afford to go to a doctor. They're all over my tongue and mouth. At first I thought it might be thrush so I have been drinking cranberry juice and eating yogurt. It seems to go away but as soon as i stop doing anything it comes right back.
Last time I took treatment about half way through my tongue got these little bumps on it an it wasn't pleasant Now after just a week and a half the same bumps are on my tongue, hurts, Burns so bad when I eat. I remember this from last time because I thought to myself people don't even realize what they have until they don't have it. I know sounds weird. Does anyone else have this problem? If so what r u doing for it?
The best treatment for this bump on the side of your tongue depends on the underlying cause of this problem. If it is due to inflamed papillae and lichen planus it may heal on its own otherwise you may need antibiotics or oral antifungal agents. See a doctor and get a clinical examination done. I sincerely hope it helps. Best wishes and kind regards!
HI i was a little worried about some bumps.
various taste buds on the top of my tongue turning white and becoming painful, each feeling like tiny pin pricks on my tongue. No bleeding. I always thought that this was a symptom of herpes (even though I was suffering pain - and pain does not usually accompany herpes outbreaks). My tongue symptoms are worse when I was under stress, and after I ran the Chicago Marathon my tongue broke out with about a dozen such white "spots" that were very painful indeed.
Also, foods that are high in acids which also effects your stomach acids. All these combined are factors in which cause the white bumps on your tongue. The only treatment for this that I know is to stop your smoke, alcohol, and foods high acid consumption for a few days to a week and the bumps will go away on their own. Consumption of the three causes will only prolong the healing.
My 14 month old daughter has 8 teeth, four on top and four on the bottom. When she was first born, I noticed she had Epstein's pearls, white bumps on her gums just below where she would cut teeth. I've seen three. They are still there, even after beginning to cut teeth. The pearls are not located under any of the teeth she has now. Will these disappear as the respective teeth are cut just above them, absorbing them into the teeth as they grow?

Hi there, A clinical examination is necessary for correct diagnosis and management. The possible causes of your symptoms are oral thrush which is an overgrowth of yeast in the mouth causing white spots to occur on the tongue, gums, roof of the mouth and the inside of the cheeks. It is usually seen in people with poor nutrition, who use inhaled steroids or are taking antibiotics and individuals with suppressed immune systems.
next my lips started crusting over and flaking off every morning and the odd time waking up with a sticky film on my lips. most recently i've noticed white bumps on the side of my mouth near the back (one or two) that kind of come and go.. also my tongue has a thick yellow coating when i wake up and is thicker at the back and my taste buds seem swollen. i feel like im producing an above normal amount of saliva as well..
-White tongue -Bumps in the tongue (front part) I have been diagnosed with oral thrush :( Have you had an oral swab to confirm if you have oral thrush or not?
The swelling in my tongue went away however, now on the right side of my tongue I have white bumps that are somewhat painful and seem to be causing a chalky aspirin like taste in my mouth.
I have been through a stressful time and my tounge has gotten red and raw patches on the tip of my tounge. Bumps like lesions on my tounge. a raised white patch with the taste buds on them seaming hard. I find myself picking at it and using a topical pain med (gly-oxide) recomended by my PC. He assures me it will pass but I thought it was something different (STD). It seems to be getting better after a day of using this med. It helps me forget it is there and go on with my day.
I have been experiencimg great discomfort for the past four days and nights due to a few little white bumps on the tip of my tongue. I have been rinsing my mouth out with listerine, using the listerine pocket-packs, salt and water, brushing consistently, even anbesol GEL and its still not healing, it may even be getting worst. I even tried pouring salt right on the bumps and left it until my eyes started to water.

It is an awful thing to 'have to put up with' I also have ulcers on the back of my tongue and roof of my mouth, this cannot be normal.
Hello, Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough,but it sounds like oil glands or Fordyce spots.They are small yellowish-white granules on the inner surface and border of the lips. Treatment of Fordyce spots includes CO2 laser or electro desiccation, TCA chemical peels(temporary treatment),diathermy or laser vaporization. For your dry lips, avoid licking the lips as saliva evaporates quickly resulting in them being drier than before.
I got back from the bar and the next day I had these tiny red bumps on the tip of my tongue that burn consistantly, and bleed. Along the side of my toungue there are little white bumps that also appear along side my tongue. It's also making me have a sore throat that never leaves, but the pain in my throat is only on one side-the left. I need help and I am worried that I could have contracted something from making out with one of the girls at the club.
After they got multipied I went to see my GP and around the same time I got a small white patch on my tongue. The GP gave me some tube and oral suspension thinking that it was thrush. The spots or the patch did not go away.Then I went to see the doctor a few times more and was told that it was nothing to worry about.I got appointment with a Sexual Health Clinic and I was given Hydrocortisone cream to apply on the glans. The spots went away after a couple of weeks but reappeared.

OK, new one for me. White coated tongue that is very tender. There are like little nubs on it that are most painful. Am trying some watermelon now.
I have been experiencing a tongue that is like sandpaper with tiny white furry type dots on the right side of my tongue. Not many, just a few but they are there. My tongue also looks like there are little gaps or what looks like cuts..(no bleeding though). Seems to irritate with coffee or spice. Has me worried. First trip to the doc's office says it could be a sign of weak immune system (possibly HIV) which I find next to impossible as my wife and I are very very low risk.
An allergic reaction could quickly affect your ability to breathe, so call 911 or go to an emergency room immediately if you have hives accompanied by hoarseness or wheezing, swelling in your tongue or face, tightness in your throat, fainting, or if you develop hives on your tongue. If you have a life-threatening allergy to a food, medication, or insect sting, wear a medical identification bracelet that describes your allergy.
The only problem is fordyce isn't contagious although my lips do look similar to the fordyce pics. Along with the white bumps on my lips I started getting little white ulcers in my mouth and muscle twitches all over my body that are worse during my time of the month. They all came at the same time and that was when I trusted and tried to work things out with the idiot I was with.
It is still a pain in the butt, the fluocinonide is greasy, but I will take the grease over the itch any day. Anyway, keep an eye on any rash. It will snow ball if not addressed. If it is raised red bumps like mine it can usually be controlled with prescription meds (unless it completely covers the body,) but if you get blisters or ulcerations or a complete body rash, head to toe, or swelling of the face, eyelids, or tongue, then that is an emergency.
