Recurrent colds: I have had a sore throat fever chills 3 times in 6 months took amoxicillin and got better but throat swab came out negative what could be causing this? ANS: almost certainly recurrent virus infections. Common during winer. You note swollen neck glands.Could be lymphoma. But need more info. Good time for live video consult.
