Bumps on Side of Tongue

Bumps on the side of the tongue can be even more annoying than on the top or bottom because they are constantly bumping into or hitting other parts of the mouth. And when sore tongue bumps hit your hard teeth, you may end up moaning in pain.

Causes of Bumps on the Side of the Tongue

Bumps on the side of the tongue come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. The red and white varieties tend to be particularly worrisome because they stand out the most. These are caused by trauma to the tongue (biting or hitting the tongue), canker sores, extremely hot, spicy, or acidic foods, swollen taste buds, or bacterial growth.

Bumps on the side of the tongue that are under the surface could indicate a swollen salivary gland or an allergic reaction. Larger swollen bumps can also be a sign of oral cancer, but those cases are rare.

Remedies for Bumps on the side of the Tongue

Some websites and discussion boards suggest that you cut off the bumps on your tongue using nail clippers or kill the bumps by gargling with hydrogen peroxide.

These suggestions are dangerous and often do not completely solve the root problem.

If the bumps on the side of you tongue are caused by fungal growth, cutting off the infected bumps will only cause infection, and gargling with hydrogen peroxide will only kill the bacteria for a short time.

To remove the bad bacteria, you need to clean your tongue!

Simply place the soft bristled head of the Orabrush against the back of your tongue and pull forward. When you remove the Orabrush you will see white gunk on it. This is the bacteria and residue you need to get rid of to prevent bumps on the side of your tongue.

If you regularly clean your tongue using the Orabrush, you will likely see fewer bumps on the side of your tongue in the future.

Better Than a Toothbrush!

Ultra-soft, pointed bristles reach deep into the uneven crevices of your tongue and loosen stinky bacteria. These bristles are designed after the surgeon's scrub brush, the same brush they use to clean bacteria from their hands before they cut you open. (Toothbrush bristles, however, are designed for the smooth surfaces of your teeth, not your tongue.) The scraper then collects and removes the bacteria and residue generated from brushing, helping cure bad breath.

    "[Dr. Bob] knew that toothbrushes, made for hard surfaces, would not work as well on tongues. He had researched ways to clean salmonella off raw chicken and learned it took flexible bristles to pry the bacteria from soft folds. Based on that, he hatched the idea for the Orabrush. It has soft, rubbery bristles for scraping across the tongue, back to front."
