Thanks for your query.
Tiny purple spot may be due to bruise secondary to violent cough. If it is not hurting, you may wait for its resolution. IF it persists then oral surgeon may be consulted.
Your cough may be secondary to your smoking habbits and you may be having smokers cough. It will be better for you to quit smoking. you may take the help of behavioral clinics and can take help of nicotine gums or patches initially.
