Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic and thanks for putting up the query
Throat infection won't cause swelling in front of the neck. the neck swelling can be due to thyroid disease or some neck space infection or salivary gland swelling or a cyst.
The throat infection can be due to post nasal drip or tonsillitis or pharyngitis.
Please send me the picture of the throat and neck so that I can suggest you better.
Any fever?
Any difficulty in swallowing?
Follow up with the required information.
Take care
Thanks and regards

Hi
Thanks for the pictures mam.
I have seen the picture. You have a skin disease probably eczema. It can be as a result of allergic reaction also to a neck jewellery or a cosmetic.
My advice is you should get yourself examined by a dermatologist.
Avoid using any cosmetics.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
