taste buds are the tiny bumps on your and my mouth.
If they are the painful type that go away in about a week or less, and are located on your tongue or inner lip, I am pretty sure they are called canker sores.
Those are called 'papillae'. Just one is called a 'papilla'.
If you are referring to the tiny white bumps on your tongue, I use white vinagar mixed half with water, gargle, spit out, they dissappear in one day.
