sore throat for 8 days

my throat has been hurting for the last 8 days, but my only other symptom is a slightly runny nose and a bit of a cough. no fever though, and i'm not even feeling all that sick. my throat doesn't hurt at night or when i'm eating, only when i swallow. the bulk of the pain is in the area under my chin and above my voice box. my glands are also a bit swollen although i'm no expert when it comes to checking glands. i guess my biggest concern is that it's lasted so long, and has shown no signs of improvment. any ideas as to what this may be?
