I am sending you a picture. I noticed this spot in my mouth ( circled in red). I looked at it today and all the redness is gone And it seems smaller but I can still see the shape of the spot at Times and not so Much at other times. It is not a lump- it is smooth like the skin around it.
Did I just irritate this area?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry, noticed it on Saturday.
Expert:  Dr. Behere replied 1 year ago.


Sorry but that too far behind in the oral cavity for me to be completely confident in answering it.

I will opt out so that another expert can take a shot at it.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok. How does that work?
Are you sure you cannot see it?
Can you at least answer this question:
If a spot appears inflamed and the inflammation goes away, is it safe to say it is not anything to be concerned about?
Expert:  Dr. Behere replied 1 year ago.

You misunderstood, I can see the spot clearly, but as a dentist, I am neither familiar nor comfortable with the back of the throat.

And your question doesn't have a a generalised answer.
