Hello Niema,

Thank you for asking

Pain in the throat may have many causes, ranging from dry throat, irritation (such as being pricked by food spines), infection (such as viruses or bacteria), reflux (backflow) of stomach acid to the throat, malignancy, side effects of drugs, immune disorders, and many other possibilities. Often, throat pain does not appear on its own, but it is also accompanied by many other complaints, such as coughing, phlegm, hoarseness, runny nose, nausea, decreased appetite, sputum or bloody saliva, and so on. The bumps that appear on the base of your tongue can be many possible causes, including ranula, lymphadenitis, gum polyps, oral cancer, tonsillitis, and so on.

These complaints, it's only natural that you consult with your doctor or ENT specialist doctor so that you can evaluate it well and find a solution. If you feel that your condition is quite severe, your doctor may also direct you to undergo further examinations, such as ultrasound, laboratory, X-ray, biopsy, and so on. Like what later treatment can be given varies depending on the cause, ranging from observation, administration of drugs, surgery, and so on.

In the meantime, you can do it first:

Take paracetamol as a pain reliever
Drink water and rinse with salt solution faster
Do not smoke
Do not squeeze or pull out the lumps that appear on the tongue
Don't eat spicy, oily, coconut milk-rich foods
Actively moving and exercising
Get more rest
Diligently brush your teeth and rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash
Do not smoke

Hope this helps ...
