ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response
Hi Douglas,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
This can be acute pharyngeal infection, those glands are the enlarged lymph nodes secondary to the throat infection. Drink plenty of warm water, do gargles with povidone iodine mouth wash. Take pain killers like ibuprofen/diclofenac. If the infection does not subside please consult a good ENT specialist.
Take care

Dr. Naveen Kumar
