Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
After reading your history , i consider of a viral infection which presented with sore throat
. A viral infection is known to reduce the local immunity leading the mucosa vulnerable to bacterial infection, which is what i consider the cause of the bumps you having now.
Tips to follow,
Gargle with warm salt water which will help in relief.
Avoid spicy and cold
