It feels like a small hole

thanks for the image

It is definitely nit thrush as thrush or candida infection usually appear white

The redness is likely a local inflammation

This can be due to various reason

Simply drinking or eating hot foods can cause this

Sometime viral infection can be the reason for it

If it is not painful and not causing any symptoms you need to have a close observation of it

If it start to increase in size or become painful then you will require to see the doctor
