if what i get sometimes the are called lie bumps and this is info I found on wikipedia about it


The name "lie bumps" is a result of a myth stating that telling a lie would cause one.[3] Lie bumps are often attributed to irritation of the tongue's papillae (taste buds) by sharp food or teeth.[3] However, very little has been written about this condition in scientific articles or textbooks and scientific studies have failed to produce a definite cause.[1] Possible causes include: "stress, gastrointestinal upset, menstruation, acidic or sour food, smoking, and local trauma" (direct physical irritation) of the tongue.[1]


There is no specific treatment for this problem, other than using ice or numbing medicines to ease the pain. [4] Anecdotal remedies include gargling with salt water and direct application of hydrogen peroxide.[not in citation given]Health Question & Answer Question & Answer

It's just 'cause your probably bit your tongue at some point, I get those all the time. I'm not sure if they're canker sores or what, but God, are they annoying.
What I do is crush up a vitamin C tablet and put it on the bump. It seems to work pretty well, but the most important thing to do is leave it alone, and just forget about it, and before you know it, it'll be gone.Health Question & Answer
