Question

Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

A small skin color pimple on your uvula might just be a skin tag. It is like a benign outgrowth of the skin.
You only need to self monitor it for any change in size, shape, color, pain, ulceration, discharge, irregularity of margins, etc. If any such abnormality appears then you need to consult your dermatologist immediately.
Still if this tag is making you feel uncomfortable you can get it removed from your dermatologist by cauterisation or dermabrasion.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.
