is this related to the white spot / bump?

the white spot is directly on the underside of the tongue.

Dr. David :

I don't think the white bump is related to your tonsilitis.

Dr. David :

that is in a different part of your mouth.

Dr. David :

I think it is a normal white spot for you.

have you shown it to your doctors?

Dr. David :

I can't see it.

no i haven't shown it to a doctor. what about the bumps at the back of the tongue?

sore throats

Customer:

what could it be?

Dr. David :

could be from acid reflux.

Dr. David :

acid reflux is common to cause sore throat

Dr. David :

there are normal taste buds in the back of the throat.

Dr. David :

which can look like bumps on the tongue and back of the throat.

Customer:

oh, i didn't realize that

Customer:

thanks

Customer:
