Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of swollen lymph nodes with sore throat which seems to be due to strep throat which is a bacterial infection. Need not to panic about it. I would suggest you to

1) Sip on lukewarm water and take throat lozenges.

2) Avoid spicy and rough food. Take diet rich in soft food.

3)Antibiotics are first line of treatment option in this case. In case of mild fever you can take Calpol or paracetamol for relief as well as it will relieve throat pain too.

4) Hot milk with a pinch of turmeric boiled with it at bed time for 2-3 days as it has antimicrobial action.

5) Take anti inflammatory drugs such as Levocetirizine.

If symptoms keeps on persisting visit pediatrician once and get it examined. Maintain oral hygiene. Take proper course of antibiotics. Get blood tests done if required.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
