Red spots back of throat without pain (3 months)


Hello everyone,
I noticed these red and orange spots on the back of my throat about 2 months ago. I don’t have pain. I don’t feel any fever or any symptom other than thick mucus, frequent throat clearing, sometime congestion of nose and maybe nasal drip feeling time to time.
I visited an ENT specialist couple of times during this period. I finished 1 course of antibiotic and nexium. And my doctor put me on second course. During second course of antibiotic I got a throat culture and it back negative. So doctor stopped the second course and told me it will go by itself. It’s been 1 month after that (total 2-3 months) but the spots are still there. I’m really worry, what it could be? I don’t have good medical options in the country I’m living. Please advise.
