Yes, thank you
Enlarged tongue papillae (tongue bumps) can be influenced by many factors such as inflammation due to irritation (due to consuming hot, spicy food), infection (coughing, colds, sore throat, or sinusitis due to infection), smoking, allergies, and because the body is deficient in vitamin B12.
Most of the enlarged papillae is not something to worry about, but if this complaint is accompanied by pain, Hania is advised to immediately see a doctor to determine what is the cause. Although sinusitis accompanied by infection can be one of the triggers for enlarged tongue papillae, what Hania experienced cannot be ascertained with certainty, because it does not rule out that even though she has a sinusitis condition, it turns out that the enlarged paiplla is caused by other things. That is why a direct examination by a doctor and or dentist needs to be done first, so that more information can be obtained to obtain strong evidence to determine what is the source of the problem.
As for some tips and suggestions for Hania so that her complaints don't get worse
Gargle with warm water (not hot) mixed with a little salt Routinely brush your teeth and clean your tongue, at least 2x a day. Avoid spicy, sour foods. In addition, very hot and cold foods and drinks should also be avoided. Drink lots of water, and consume a balanced nutritious diet
