Hello Laura and thanks for the query
You need to be get examined by the ENT specialist
and get some investigations like throat swab test to select the effective antibiotic the the throat infection
. The swollen glands under ear may be lymph
node and can be due to the sore throat
. Get a course of antibiotic as prescribed by your doctor with some analgesic
and anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce pain. If the swollen glands reduces under the ear than its good otherwise you need to get investigated for that separately. In addition to this follow certain steps:
1. Do lukewarm water gargles.
2. Avoid oily and cold water or drinks.
3. Keep yourself hydrated.
4. Get steam inhalation regularly and expel out phlegm as much as possible.
5. Try to avoid complete blockage of nasal pathway.
Hope this will help you.
Best Wishes and have a good time.
