General Surgeon 's  Response
The white spots on the uvula can be due to developing aphthous ulcers.
The raised bumps on the tongue can be due to inflammatory of the lingual tonsils. The hoarse voice is most probably due to laryngitis.
All these symptoms and sign scan be due Pharyngitis. As this is for about a week your daughter should be treated with proper antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medicines, probiotics.
She should have a ''voice-rest'', take steam inhalations too.
