Tender lymph node under jaw that hurts on turning head, sore throat, no relief with antibiotics. Suggestion?

Hi, I am a 24 y/o Female and have a tender lymph node under the righ side of my jaw. It doesn t bother me until I turn my head to that side. I do have a sore throat , my daughter has been sick with the cold and I m pretty sure I m coming down with something as well. I went to the Dr and was prescribed antibiotics but the issue with the lymph node wasn t present until yesterday. Just curious if this is something I should worry about or wait until my sore throat goes away. Thanks.

Hi Mam,
I have gone through your query.
It suggests that you may be suffering from the inflammatory lymphadenopathy. In this case no need to so much worry and you wait until your sore throat goes away.
Just continue your treatment.

If you have any doubt, I will be available for your query.
