Skin Tag near tonsil

I felt like I had some food back near my tonsil and looked with a flashlight. I have always had a spot that a little more raised my doctor said it was a gland. Beside it I noticed there was a small raised area that looks like a skin tag. It doesn't appear discolored but I know it is fairly new as I've looked at the back of my throat in the past.    I have had allergy like symptoms lately and my glands appear a little swollen. So the skin tag thing has me slightly concerned.

Any thoughts on what this may be would be appreciated.
