The swelling in the neck could be lymph nodes which have got enlarged as a result of throat infection that you had. They should subside in a matter of time since you have already taken antibiotics. If they persist beyond say 2 to 3 weeks you can go in for a FNAC of the gland to establish the diagnosis.
