Hi..
Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..

I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain it seems that you had swollen lymph nodes secondary to throat infection leading to pain in moving neck, tonsillitis..
As your infection is now healed and your tonsils are no longer inflamed its sign of resolution of infection..
The lymph nodes generally take a longer time to resolve as compared to the healing of the infection and you need not to worry as gradually they will regress in size..
You can do warm compresses over the lymph nodes..
Take Ibuprofen to relieve pain..
Ashort course of antibiotics like Augmentin can be taken for 5 days..
In case if they do not resolve or show sighs of improvement in 15 days consult an ENT expert and get evaluated..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
