Red patch on roof of mouth and had a cold and sore throat

I have had a cold and sore throat for a few days now. Cold has nearly gone apart from a slight cough. However the sore throat seems to have come back (only lasted a day). I today noticed that I have a few small red patches on the roof of my mouth. They dont hurt and only appeared today. They look like burst blood vessels. I am worried about them.

well u certainly seem to recovering with a throat infection most probably a bacterial one need to give ur age n othr symptoms also the red patches may be an continuation of the throat infection towards ur palate but also seems like an inflammation uptill now
do salt water gargles thrice daily with soft cold food avoid hot food
do not irritate the patches they heal with time probaly 2-4 days
use an oral mothrinse in addition to salt water daily
any problems consult an e.n.t in person after three days
