Hi, my daughter, aged 13 was diagnosed with Pharyngitis for the first time on the 1 June 2006. We have been back to the doctor 4 times since then, had three sets of antibiotics, cortisone treatment and she still has Pharyngitis 2 months later. How is this possible? She has swollen lymph nodes and is permanently tired. I asked for them to check that it was not glandular fever but my doctor said it wasn't necessary to check as he was sure it was not. She is a provincial swimmer - hoping to soon swim for our country but she has not been able to train for two months. PLease can someone give me some advice on what to do or what other illness she may have other than Pharyngitis.
