Dear Anonymous, most individuals will, at one or other stage in their lifetime, experience small red bumps on their tongue, which may be sensitive, burn or even be painful. The cause is usually due to some irritation of the papillae of the tongue. Often the cause is not clear, however, irritation from certain foods and/or food additives may be the cause. Should the condition not clear up spontaneously within a few days, it would be advisable to visit your doctor or dentist so that a professional examination can be performed and treatment prescribed.
