Various: Could be allergies, soft tissue injury such as an abrasion, reaction to your medication. If it is short duration, likely a food allergy. If longer, could be side effect of medication. If just came on suddenly and getting better daily, it is likely an abrasion. Could be a fungal or viral infection. See your dentist or doctor for a definitive diagnosis.

Soft Palate: It could be from something as simple as trauma to your soft palate (i.e. pizza burn); or it could be something more serious, as an underlying pathology. Probably best to get it looked at professionally.
