Can seasonal allergies cause a sore red patch on the roof of the mouth?

Allergy symptoms: Seasonal allergies may typically affect the eyes and respiratory mucosa (nasal passages and bronchial tubes). Rarely it may be associated with other dermal or mucosal reactions, such as hives or eczema. It would be unusual for pollen to cause inflammation of the palate. I would think of another cause before considering allergy.

What could a small, itchy, and sore bump on the roof of my mouth towards the back be? My allergies have been really bad lately too, if that helps.

Allergies vs. Virus: Considering your allergies have been acting up, that sore bump could easily be an area of allergic inflammation on the soft palate. It could also be part of a mild viral infection that's affecting your throat and palate. I recommend considering allergy treatment with an antihistamine like Zyrtec, (cetirizine) while rinsing with warm salt water twice daily. Give it a week and it should be better!

Burned roof of mouth a few days ago now it still is sore and tissue is swollen could be infected how can I heal it faster?

Without further: Additional injury, the burn should resolve in 10-14 days since the accident, probably another week for you. Sorry, no miracle treatments are available to speed that healing process. Avoid spicy foods and use bland toothpaste. Ask your dentist about a prescription rinse that can help soothe the area while it heals. Good luck!
