Any chance you use inhalers? I have had oral and esophageal candida from inhalers and it could show as white bumps.

I used to get oral thrush a lot when my lupus was very active. I take antibiotics often and prednisone everyday and these medicines can cause the fungus candida to grow out of hand. Also if you have low immunity, dry mouth, or have stressful situations you are likely to develop these white bumps. The gastroenterologist would be the best person to prescribe the right medicine. Good luck.
