Doubt mycoplasma: Mycoplasma pneumoniae causes respiratory infections, but it's not a common cause of sore throat or inflamed nodes in the neck. This sounds more like a garden variety viral infection, and no antibiotic will help. Or maybe strep throat? Check with your doctor: if s/he believes M pneumoniae or strep is likely, then azithromycin would be effective and is safe for nursing babies.
