  1. Hello. If redness of uvula is accompanied by fever, headaches, and body aches it is probably the beginning of a viral or bacterial infection. If tonsils get covered with white spots you need to consult. Keep monitoring the situation and consult if necessary. If no fever, headaches, or body aches it may just be the beginning of a fungal infection (thrush). If white spots appear on uvula it will be thrush. Use your antifungal lozenges and gargle with warm salt water. Also antibiotics should be taken with care and kept to a strict need to use basis. Regards

  2. Hi.
    Thanks for writing to us.

    If you have white spots on uvula and also there is redness of uvula then it is due to Uvulitis and your symptoms looks more like infection.
    Post nasal drip can also lead to infection as it is infectious draining mucous down the throat.

    You should consult an Emergency room or a Physician and get checked.

    A throat swab culture can help in confirmation of the exact cause.

    If infection is confirmed then you need to take antibiotics.

    For now Do warm saline gargles, steam inhalation and using a humidifier in your room can be very much relieving.
    -You can also suck throat lozenges to soothe the throat and uvula..
    -Gargle with numbing mouthwash containing Lignocaine..
    -Gargle with antiseptic solution like few drops of betadine in water..
    -Chew Vitamin C pellets to boost up the immunity..
    -Avoid spicy and chilled foods..
