At some point he had some Thrush before, I do not know if it was related. Now when we touch his throat he says it hurts. Its not strep throat , xray showed nothing and had the camera in the troat didnt show anything either. he has a small lump on the right side of his next, i don't know if it's lymph node that's swollen or something else. Please help Im at the end of my rope

Brief Answer:
Chronic pharyngitis

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Thanks for putting up the query
From the complaints it seems to be tonsillitis with lymph node swelling in the neck.
Please send me the picture of his throat after opening the mouth and pressing the tongue with a spoon.
This will help to diagnose the problem and I will suggest you better.
Follow up with the required information.
Take care
Thanks and regards
