Thanks for your query.

If the sore-throat is associated with swollen glands in the inner side walls of the throat, it could be tonsillitis.Tonsillitis occurs usually due to bacterial infection.

The bacterial infection could be isolated or could be secondary to a viral infection.

I suggest you to gargle with antiseptic solution like CHLORHEXIDINE twice daily after food for three days .This will reduce the bacterial burden and prevent it from progressing.You will be needing a course of antibiotics , do consult your treating doctor for the same.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
