I have two yellowish tint flesh colored bumps are connected on my tonsil. They form an alphabet "B" if you look at the side of them. They do not hurt and it is smooth with no irritation. I have had allergies and stuffiness for months now. I am really scared of HPV. I am a hypochondriac. I do not know when they showed, but I noticed them recently. I am currently on birth control pills and Claritin. I went to a dentist and he did not think that it is related to HPV. Please give your opinion.
