Drainage: Sometimes sinus drainage causes blisters on the back of your throat and can cause your tonsils(if you have them) to swell. I would get checked out if you are having severe pain or difficulty swallowing to make sure you do not have strep, mono or other ailments. Good luck

Agree with Dr. Ibrahim. Also, allegies can cause post-nasal drip and the allergens in the mucus can irritate the mucus glands & lymph tissue of the throat causing reddish bumps.
