I believe that what you have is called strawberry tounge.  My 11 yr old son gets it ( I am pretty sure he is not making out with any girls).  I believe it is associated with strep throat. His actually look like circles the size of an eraser on a pencil.  Sometimes smaller. The 2 times he had them he did not complain of soar throat but did test positive for strep.  At first the Dr. In the ER was baffled thinking it was some sort of ring worm but ring worm does not appear on tounge .  After a consult with 2 other ER Dr's they diagnosed strawberry tounge.  I strongly suggest that you tell your parents and more important go to DR. PLEASE.  Strep is easily treated with an antibiotic however if left untreated an cause many complications. One being with the heart.  Hope this helps someone.  I am off to Dr.with my son.  If I get any other diagnosis I will post.
