Red spots roof of mouth

Hello! A few weeks ago, I had a terrible sore throat with a cold and noticed some red spots toward the back of my mouth. I didn’t think much of it at the time while I was sick. I noticed this week that there seem to be some lingering spots though. Could these still be related to having been sick? Or is this something different I should look into more? They don’t hurt, but my anxiety can easily get the best of me. Some of the spots almost seem raised/like tiny clear bubbles, but over some redness (or maybe blood vessels?)

For some extra context, if it helps: I’m a 37 year old woman, I don’t drink or smoke. Avid coffee/tea drinker. I grind my teeth/clench by jaw at night, but do wear a night guard.

Nothing to be concerned about. Could just have been some inflamed salivary glands, due to you being sick. Should gradually disappear.
