Sore throat, swollen lymph node below jaw, pains, nasal congestion, sneezing, itchy bruise on thigh

I had strep throat about 4 weeks ago, was treated with Ab and done. A sore throat came back/persisted for about 2 weeks after that, was accompanied with a lot of congestion in my throad and coughing, and then disappeared. A few days later, a lymph node (or salivary gland , just below my jaw, in front of my ear) was swollen and painful to touch. The swelling is reduced but not gone away but it s not painful to touch anymore. I have a lot of nasal congestion and sneezing currently (which I think is just allergies). Randomly, I also have an itchy bruise on my upper left thigh that appeared two days ago. Is any of this related?

Thanks for the query..
After infection sometimes the discharge and cough persist which slowly come down..
The lymph node indicates presence of infection in the surrounding area but because you have already taken antibiotic..
The lymph node is not related to the bruise on the thigh..
You can do some saline garglings and take warm water for drinking for congestion and cough...
Hope I answered your query..Take care...
