Sore throat, mild fever, swollen lymph nodes around neck, difficulty in swallowing. Anything to worry ?

I got a sore throat a few days ago, had mild fever, swollen lymph nodes around my neck (below jaws), and today start to experiencing difficulty swallowing food, drinking water, or even my saliva . Should I be concerned and make an appointment with my doctor? I don t have other symptoms other than very sore throat. I do not cough either. My wife and son have been cough still.

Thanks for choosing HCM.
You seem to be having an Upper respiratory infection which needs to be assessed by a doctor to see if it needs antibiotics.
Till then, you please do a warm saline throat gargles, drink warm fluids, avoid spicy oily foods.
