lumps in throat and granulea on the pharynx

I think I have posted this in wrong community few days ago so I'll post it here.
Last year somewhere in august after few days of hangover and dehydration I felt a burning sensation in my throat. I checked it out and noticed red bumps all over my pharynx and few small lumps under my tonsils, I was so scared that I caught HPV from just 1 exposure of 3 minutes in my whole life! After that I've been having burning sensation in my pharynx and upper respiratory wall + extra mucus mostly in cold wet days that would happen. The only symptoms I have are a burning sensation on pharynx and upper respiratory wall (usually in the morning when I wake up) and mucus production, also when flu would hit me these granules on the back would become inflamed and enlarged, once the flue is gone they cwould go back to their normal size. Now after a year and 4 months those granules are less colorful and none of them got bigger nor spread around the same goes for the lumps beneath my tonsils. I already seen 2 GPs and both of them said it's nothing and it's usual for pharynx to be inflamed due to extra mucus being there (but tbh I doubt they were looking there)... My CBC and leukocytes count are perfect! I've booked a visit to a dentist for 14th of Jan.I have also attached 2 pictures,
The first one shows the granules and second lumps, please let me know what you think it might be.



Thanks in advance!
