Welcome dear!

Thanks for consulting me at virtual clinic. I have carefully worked through your case, and I can realize your health worries. Being your physician, I assure you not to worry as I will take care all of your medical concerns.
It looks like soft tissue infection ( on hard and soft palate). it  may lead to pharyngitis.
I usually prescribe antibiotics to my patients for such disease. Amoxicillin500mg per oral twice daily for 5days is good for this. You may ask a prescription from your doctor.

Also you need gargles with listerine 3times daily. Its not so serious but you need to take care of it.
