In brief: Red spots in throat

Yes, in fact with strep throat you often do not have white spots on the tonsils, but instead red spots on the back of the throat and back of roof of mouth.
Also, strep can cause bad breath, a headache, stomach pain, fever, and a sand-paper like rash on the stomach. If you think you have strep throat, see your doctor as antibiotics are needed to treat.

I recommend visiting your physician to determine if you have a strep infection and so you get the appropriate treatment. Wishing you'all the best.
