Painful throat, swollen lymph node, inflammation. Due to strep?

Hello i want to enquire about a sore throat that is causing me some pain. I have what looks to be swollen lymph nodes,when i got a light and focused it to the back of my throat,i could see the leff side was pretty inflamed. There was yellow,white and grey spots at the back,kinda looked bruised a bit and a bit scabby. Kind of looks like it could be Strep throat but im starting to think it might not be now seen as i have had it for 3 weeks and started spittting up red spit now,im guessing the red spit is coming from an agitated throat. I would highly appreciate your input and reply.

yes your are correct that there could be throat infection .you should not ignore it consult a doctor so that throat can be checked and the status of lymph nodes can be checked...if there is infection then throat swab can be taken for culture of the organism and its drug sensitivity can be done ...and antibiotics should be started.
