Urgent, painful white bumps
I have quite a few white bumps on my tongue, and at times they bleed. I was wondering, since I do use cocaine, that if that is the cause? A friend told me that might be the cause, but I would like to ask an expert. Thank you very much.
From the information you furnished, it not possible to assess your problem accurately. It is very possible that these lesions are related to your cocaine use. You need to visit your dentist or an oral pathologist to determine the exact diagnosis and its cause. They will be able to recommend a treatment that will resolve this condition.
