Hallo Carol
Swollen glands are often caused by infection in the head and neck area, if it was due to virus, the antibiotics would not have made any difference as your body needs to fight the virus, antibiotics only work for bacteria. If the glands persist, it is often necessary to do blood tests or take a biopsy of the glands
