I didn't know they were actually bumps on my tongue until Saturday night. When I saw the doctor last Mon., she really didn't look very long and since I didn't know they were bumps, didn't say there were bumps. I just told her that it felt like I had something in my throat on the left side. I am concerned because I would have thought they should be gone by now. I've been on Cipro for a week. I have never had anything like this before in my life. She said strep throat was going around. Could that cause the bumps?
