Red dots: "Red dots" is not a diagnosis, merely a description, so can't tell without an examination.

I'm having some infection on my soft palate. There is some kind of red, brown, white dots. It hurts when I swallow anything. Any home remedies?

I'm having some infection on my soft palate. There is some kind of red, brown, white dots. It hurts when I swallow anything. Any home remedies?

Soft Palate: Nothing beats seeing a physician who can personally examine you. That is what I would recommend. Short of that you can try salt water rinses (teaspoon salt in glass of warm water) and antiseptic mouthwash or lozenges. Hopefully it's just a mild virus and will resolve on its own in a couple of days. ...Read more

28 male smoker raised bumps on hard palate tiny red dots in rough texture appearance red and white pigments any ideas. Not sore or painfull?

Nicotine Stomatitis: All tissues will respond to repeated attacks by mounting a defense. Smoking exposes the mouth to heat, the chemicals and the vapors of burning tobacco & can cause changes in the appearance. These changes can indicate the beginnings of oral cancer or be completely benign. Only a dentist can tell for sure and may reccommend a biopsy of the area to be certain so you need to have it checked right away. ...Read more

Tonsils are red as well as back of throat, palate is yellow with red dots. Heavily congested with large amount of yellow/palemucus. What could I have?

Tonsillitis: Could be tonsillitis or tonsillopharyngitis. Could be sinusitis if the yellow mucous is coming from your nose or sinuses.

May be viral: If there is a single sore and you have no other symptoms (no headache, no stomach ache, no fever), the sore throat may well be a virus. Treatment for that is supportive. If you develop any of the above symptoms in addition, however, and do not have symptoms such as stuffy nose or cough, see your doctor to make sure you do not have strep. ...Read more
