Bumps/ Sores on tongue

My taste buds are enlarged/ risen and I have many raised bumps/sores behind the taste buds (some are larger than others).  Also, I have a very bad taste in my mouth..Any help would be appreciated.  My 11 year old has a prescription for lidocaine/antac/diphenhis rinse for his cold sores.  Can I try it?

I would recommend seeing a dentist to see what is causing the bumps and sores on your tongue.  When did they start appearing and are there any other symptoms outside of the mouth such as fever, etc?

As for the prescription, its advise to not use other people's prescriptions since they are specific for that person for a particular issue.
