Palate swelling: If the soft palate is truly swollen it may be from angioedema which indicates an allergic reaction. An infection is less likely in the absence of pain and tenderness. Mouth breathing during sleep accounts for the dryness but shouldn't cause swelling. A physician or Otolaryngologist could evaluate your palate and advise you.
