I have red bumps on the back of my mouth/throat, and it hurts to swallow. I did have a runny nose, and cough, but no longer do. What is this?

In brief: Bumps in Throat

The red bumps are lymph follicles in the mucous membranes surrounding your throat.
Any irritation, virus, or bacterial infection may cause these to enlarge after exposure. Unless the irritation is constant, the bumps will subside over time. If they stay enlarged, go see your doctor.
