Very sore throat that feels "itchy" (best word I can think to describe the scratchy pain). Same feeling deep in ear canal. Swollen glands under chin.

Please get a strep. Throat culture/ test. Antibiotics are imperative for strep throat. Try saltwater gargles. Mix tsp of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle w this several times/day. You can gargle w aloe vera juice a couple of times per day. A mix of chamomile tea w honey ; a small amt of lemon juice helps.
