Throat pain after 2 doses of antibiotics

Patient : I am on my second dose of antibiotics for strep throat, it came back a few days after I finished the first dose.

What should I do next and what could be the cause?
Symptoms:  Sore throat when swallowing, swollen glands, feels like someone is squeezing throat, pain radiating to chest and back
