a persistent sore throat could be due to many factors, including an infection that has not been adequately or appropriately treated, allergy, acid reflux etc. swelling over the uvula can also be seen in conditions like angio neurotic oedema - i advise you to consult with an ENT specialist in your neighbourhood, as soon as possible.
