The symptoms you are having are suggestive of sore throat.Although most of sore throats are caused by viral infections.Another possibility that this infection can be due to bacterial like strep throat.It is the most common bacterial cause of sore throat.It is caused group A Streptococcus bacteria.The bumps in back of tongue can be enlarged papillae also because of this infection.

Strep can not be accurately diagnosed by looking at the throat alone. It requires a laboratory test.A throat swab or a rapid test is required to rule out/diagnose strep infection.Sore throat caused by a viral infection generally clears up on its own within one week with no complications.

So the botXXXXX XXXXXne is I advice you to wait & watch your symptoms over next 5-7 days.It will get clear of its own.If still the symptoms persists,after 7 days,then you need to consult your doctor for examination & tests.Antibiotics may then be prescribed accordingly.
