during attacks of cough and cold its normal to have some granular red swellings over posterior pharyx. its usually harmless and resolves with treatment. take antibiotics, analgesic with anti cold medicines for few days. also do salt water gargling. if symptoms persist then you need to get your throat examined by specialist near you
