I would like to ask a query
Do you have history of Tonsillitis?

Sore throat,dizziness, headache suggest you might have allergy or viral infection.
Since you have no fever,dizziness went away, you need not worry.

If I were your treating doctor I would suggest you
Steam inhalation 2 times a day
Anti histamines like Cetrizine before bed for 5 days for allergy.
Drink warm water regularly.
Salt water gargles 3 times a day.
Avoid exposure to cold air.
Avoid cold food like ice creams,cold water.

You red spot will disappear within 2-3 days.
