Inflamed Tonsil, Cough, Painless Spot on Soft Palate (Mucocele?)

Hi there,

For the past 3 weeks, closer to a month, I've been suffering froma persistent cough; a sore throat with the feeling of constantly having to swallow with something stuck; one very inflamed left tonsil and a painless spot on the soft palate of my mouth which comes and goes

It is very frustrating and gargling with salt water, drinking plenty, rest - none of it seems to help at all

I am coughing all day and my throat is constantly uncomfortable - my lips are also always very dry

Please advise me on your thoughts through the photos attached:
