I usually visit the ulcerative colitis forum, but am here today to ask about my husband's sore throat.
He's had a sore throat off and on for about 2 months I think. It's not scratchy like the usual kind he gets before a cold. His throat feels kind of swollen and the glands in his neck are swollen, but it comes and goes throughout the day. He's also more tired than usual. The doctor said maybe it was allergies. Is it possible to have only a swollen throat and glands as symptoms of an allergy? The doctor did a swab and it came back negative for strep.
He went back to the doctor last week and she said it looked a little irritated so gave him antibiotics. After 4 days of antibiotics, it's no better. So either it's not bacterial or it's resistant to the antibiotics he was given.
Does anyone have an allergy where a swollen glands and throat are the only symptoms?
