Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Dear, you may be suffering from pharyngitis or tonsillitis which may lead to congestion and red spots formation and pain. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Use salt water gargling thrice a day for five days. Avoid spicy food and allergen.

If symptoms not improve please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu
