I have no difficulty swallowing but my throat is red. I had a sore throat about a week ago but it's still red. What could this be?

In brief: Several...

Several possibilities exist including normal, "sore throat, " infection either viral or bacterial.
If you're sure this is not your normal color and your usual sore throat remedies don't work after 1-2 weeks check in with your pcp and make sure it's not something more serious.
