Healing tissue: The throat tissue was likely red, irritated and injured during your bout of tonsillitis. Now that you have finished treatment, it needs to heal. Just like healing skin is often sensitive and 'itchy' for weeks after an injury, your mucous membranes are similar. They are often more sensitive for weeks after, so unless there is pain, fever, etc i would just push fluids, use lots of humidity and wait! ...Read more

There are also autoimmune diseases which can cause ulceration in the mouth as would be certain drug reactions. Once the dentist has determined what kind of problem you may have, he can either treat you or refer you elsewhere. ...Read more

Salivary gland/diver: the sensation of something "stuck" in the throat could be secondary to an enlarged salivary gland (associated with dry mouth) secondary to a little stone in the salivary gland duct. Other possibility could be a small diverticulum (a little sac or pouch) on the side of esophagus(the food pipe that goes from the mouth to the stomach). Acid reflux can irritate the upper esophagus also. ...Read more
