The tongue taste buds are called papilla and they can swell and look like white bumps. You may have reacted to some food, and stress about it can keep it like bumps. You can do nothing and they get better, or you could drink cool or cold liquid and slosh it around. If it persists, a dental practice is best to have check it, or family practice doctor. Thanks again for using Justanswer.
