How to get rid of sore throat and swollen gland?

Support immune syste

Neck-throat
Try salt water gargles twice daily, increase fluids to the amount of ounces = to half your weight in pounds, make sure you are getting adequate sleep to restore your immune system (7.5-8 hours/night). You can also add Vitamin C and zinc to your regimen to support immune system. Most often the cause is viral and unless symptoms persist, I would not recommend antibiotics
