By the symptoms that you are mentioning it seems to be an upper respiratory tract
infection . Since your symptoms have persisted for more than 5 days you are most probably having a bacterial infection .
I suggest the following
Take steam inhalation at least 3 times a day .
gargling twice a day
Avoid oily food and cold
food like ice creams etc
Take a paracetamol
3-4 times a day .
You will also need a dose of antibiotic such as Tab . Levofloxacin
for 5 days ( but you will need a prescription for it )
Also when you say throat glands i am assuming its tonsils you are talking of .
In case there is a recurrence or persistence of swelling of the tonsils you will need to be evaluated by an ENT surgeon
