Being anemic causes your tongue to burn a lot. Regarding the white bumps which you see on the tongue I think you may be referring the normal taste buds on the surface of the tongue and it is better to visit nearby dentist to have a look about what those bumps are. Have lots of green leafy vegetables, dates honey, pomegranate and the substances that are rich in iron. Treatment of anaemia depends upon how severely anaemic you are.
