hurts to swallow and my glands are swallon as well

Ok, this does sound like pharyngitis, possibly strep throat.

Here are some things you can do at home to help:

Gargle with salt water 2-3 times per day

Drink plenty of cold water to help soothe the area

Sip on turmeric tea

Use ibuprofen to help with the pain. You can also get chloraseptic spray to help numb your throat

Ginger, honey and lemon in water

If symptoms worsen over the course of 48 hours you really may need to see a doctor and get antibiotics. Hope that helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
