Thanks for writing in.
The small red bumps on the back of the throat might be due to granular pharyngitis
The sore throat
might be part of a viral or bacterial infection. Any history of fever
,cold etc ?
If it is a bacterial infection, you might need to take antibiotics. However, If it is viral, it is self limiting and will get better on its own.
Do try the following measures:
Drink warm water at regular intervals .
Have a teaspoon of honey mixed with a few drops of lime.
Warm saline gargles 3 to 5 times a day.
Avoid smoking/alcohol/spicy food.
Do steam inhalation 3 times a day, if any cough with phlegm or symptoms of sinusitis
If it does not get better, please visit an ENT specialist
for a thorough examination.
Hope this helps.
