? virus: A lot of viral illnesses are active now. Inflammation in the throat can cause some slight discoloration (the red blood vessels are normal, but the yellow color may be a result of changes in vascular flow). Worrisome symptoms would be body/joint aches, fever, and symptoms for more than 10 days (indicative of a bacterial infection requiring antibiotics). Inflammation could cause the neck ache too
