Since antbiotic did help, this can still be from the infection.
Antibiotic course can be extended as sometimes it may take longer antibiotic course.
Other possibility can be the viral infection which can cause inflammation of the lymph node.
THis takes several weeks to go down in that case.
There is some risk of cancer which can cause swollen lymph node.
But usually that is painless.
Hence, that risk is unlikely.
If this persists even after 2 weeks, it will be better to consider a neck CT scan and lymph node biopsy for further evaluation.
