In brief: Red Bumps in throat

Red bumps in the back of the throat could represent a number of different things.
If they are asymptomatic they could be small swollen or irritated glands that live in the mucus membrane, could be tonsil tissue, or other "immune" system tissue. If there are symptoms they could be related to infection. In rare cases (and with typical risk factors they could be growths that need a biopsy) - see dr.
