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.

sir.. throat infection would have lead to the lymph node swelling... its not necessary that one course of antibiotics should reduce the node swelling also...itl take 2-3 weeks to resolve...you csn consult your physician back if it doesnt resolve in a month... food as such there are no restrictions...have warm properly cooked food...avoid anything raw for few weeks...drink warm water...hope it helps
