Also it is a white this like on my tonsil

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, such white bump on tonsil either this can be the debris sticking in the crypts of tonsils or can be stone in tonsil.Crypts are small pouches in the tonsils which serves to collect debris.

Red bumps in the throat can be a sign of infection (viral or bacterial) or, if at the very back of the throat, they may be due to your postnasal drainage.

Now I would recommend to try some self care measures like

Do nasal saline spray and nasonex spray.

Also do saline gargles and oral betadine rinse.

Take OTC Claritin and Motrin for few days.

You should start a multivitamin supplement and vitamin C lozenges.

Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

Start a probiotic.

And eat soft,bland diet.

If your symptoms 'll persist then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Ok does it look life threatening I’m just scared sorry for so many questions

I have reviewed your picture.

And such red bumps on back of throat/tongue are the circumvallate papillae, which are larger taste buds at the very back of the tongue.

In case of an infection,irritation, these papillae may become more prominent.

The white build-up on the tonsils could represent a tonsillitis or Tonsilloliths o-tonsil stone - calcifications that form in the crypts of the palatal tonsils.

These are not life threatening.

And you should take such self care measures as we have discussed earlier that provide you good results.

Still I would recommend to see your doctor or ENT specialist as you are breast feeding.

Hope this helps.

I️ don’t understand the first part of the paragraph it will be little more understanding over the phone if you do not mind nd(###) ###-####

I can explain you in chat mode only.

I'm currently not able to contact you through phone.

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question

As per your picture,you have raised bumps on back of throat on tongue which are prominent taste buds.

And white bump is either tonsil stone or infection of tonsil.

And now I want to assure you that these are not life threatening.

You can try such self care measures as we have discussed earlier that provide you good results.

Hope this helps.

Okay . Do you think you can explain what did you mean by larger taste buds , also what is circumvallate papillae and will it stay on
My tounuge ..is this normal what you seen in my mouth
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
they won’t go away ? And what do you think prevented this

I have upload a picture to explain your bumps.These are present always on tongue and only get visible when they get prominent with infection or irritation.

These can get less prominent with such self care measures.

Hope this helps.

Okay ! So they will go away . Should I️ go back to the dentist so I️ can be prescribed with somthing or the doctor
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
Also I️ don’t understand the pay how much money did I️ pay and will it keep adding more money once I️ log out ?

You can go back to dentist if your symptoms'll persist even after taking such self care measures.

Your phone call wouldn't be charged as I have rejected it.

You need to pay initial question payment(around 35$) if you provide a

positive rating by clicking 5 stars if you are satisfied with our conversation. Bonus is highly appreciated.
We can continue our conversation even after you provide rating.
