Throat infection
My wife has severe throat infection. She had lymph nodes swollen and took antibiotics and pain killers  for 7 days.  Infection was mainly on left and centre of neck. Now it has reduced a bit but taken place on right side as well. She is feeling very weak. What is the best treatment and food to recover.
