you need medial attention as this is starting stage and there is post nasal driping of mucus into throat causing the problems
and the most likely cause is sinusitis
if you neglect you can have chronic problems with the same symptomps you are fearing and you dont have today
evem manjuana can cause dryness andallergies
get xray pns waters view and consult ent or allergy specialist to clear according to allergy guidelines

hi dear....
this picture of having dryness feeling in the throat and mild discomfort on the background of small red bumps in the throat is suggestive of chronic occur in vit A,C dificiency and when chronic irritants are present like smoking,and using marijauna......
so removing the irritants and taking diet rich in vit A,C IS all that is needed....
