There is no strep throat virus, the cause is a bacteria. If the bacteria got into a gland and cause swelling, simple antibiotic treatment would help.If the issue is truly caused by a virus, it would have to run its course.A visit to an ENT might confirm or exclude your self diagnosis and find you a plan for treatment.
