I got a few really horrible sore throats last fall. It wasn't strep any of the times. I ended up getting a peritonsillar abcess and had to get my tonsils out because it was not responding to antibiotics at all, even in IV form. I had never had any problems with my tonsils before getting UC...probably just a coincidence. I'm not on 6-mp. I do know that lymph nodes can remain swollen for weeks after an infection is gone...but if it just reappeared I'm not sure what's going on. Hope your daughter feels better soon.
