Hello, Thank you for consulting with HCM.
The red spots which you are mentioning can be the normal taste buds only, and even the veins are also normal.
But the yellow area which you are mentioning on the roof is because of smoking only called as smokers palate.
Better you should quit smoking.
Hope it will help you.
