Weird bumps on back of tongue white film

Edited , 7 users are following.

I was treated for possible thrush months ago but doctor advised me to stop nystatin because of possible allergic reaction. still have a white film on tongue and tongue almost seems fuzzy. when I brush those things pop up and I've had the bumps on the back on my tongue constantly and also have a small tiny slightly raised smooth bump on hard palate. no idea if it's always been there or I'm just noticing it. is this normal? I went to get fillings last week and the dentist did not mention anything

    those bumps are papillae an there normal mine are the same i also have a bit of a coating at the bck its down to food debris etc u should buy a tongue scraper to help remove it never brush the tongue with a toothbrush it can cause it to bleed an swell u should ask for some oral fluconazole to see if that helps get rid of any lingering yeast but it dosnt look to bad to be fair

      hey i literally have been freaking out because i have those bumps like those in the back and then inflamed bumps at the tip of my tongue but anyways i went to the docotors and they told me it was either from stress, allergies, or a virus and that they should go away within a week to two but they literally havent for me but i think it just depends on the person and their bodies i dont think its anything too serious to worry about
