Question:

Why do i have red bumps in the back of my tongue and why do they hurt?

Answer:

Thank you for visiting NetWellness. A question similar to yours has been previously addressed. The link below will connect you to that information.  If this lasts longer than a week or two, you should probably make an appointment to see an oral pathologist or otolaryngologist for evaluation.
