Pain while swallowing, pain in the neck below the jaw. Due to common cold?

I have some pain when I swallow, almost as if my tongue and directly below it hurts. I ve also just found that there s a rather intense pain that comes when I touch my neck , just under my jaw on both sides. I had some cold/ flu symptoms a couple of days ago that seemed to have run their course. Is the tightness in my neck and pain when swallowing related to a common cold?

From history it appears that you might be having acute pharynghitis giving rise to enlarge painful lymph nodes in the neck and jaw producing all these problems.
Go for one antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicine courses.
Avoid cold drinks and junk food.
Do antiseptic gargles.
Ok and take care.
