Throat inflammation, pink spots behind tongue, spots continuing down throat. Cure for spots?

I have a slightly inflamed throat and for the first time this morning I noticed pink dots/spots/circles on the back of my tongue . They are on either side of my tongue and travel down towards my throat in an upside down V shape. It feels like they may continue down my throat. There is no pain whatsoever. What is this????

Hello dear,

All these symptoms indicate that you might be having Pharyngitis.
Management includes:
1. Gargle with warm salt water.
2. Analgesics like paracetamol.
3. Antihistamine preparations can also be used to provide symptomatic relief.
If symptoms still will be better to consult an ENT specialist.

Meanwhile...avoid taking cold food & drinks, maintain adequate hydration & take soft, non-spicy foods.
Wish you good health & a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.
