Fever, pain around neck, difficulty in breathing, swallowing, mucus with blood streaks. Medicines?

Hi, last week I was bed-ridden due to a fever, chills, major body aches, nausea , and a sore throat . After that week, I had gotten better for 2-3 days except on Wednesday, I was back to being bed-ridden due to a spike in fever, aches on/around my neck (swollen lymph nodes), and apparently a serious throat infection? It looks like tonsillitis because of the inflamed tonsils/white wall? I can t breath or swallow properly without being in pain, and I m spitting a ton of phlegm or mucous in a yellow color. This morning there were streaks of blood in the spit. I hardly cough along with the illness, but when I do, it makes it VERY hard to breath, and more blood produces. I m not sure what I have, but I was prescribed [Prednisone] and [Cephalexin]. I just want to know what it is. Thank you.

HI I have gone through your mail and I came to know that you are having acute tonsillopharyngitis with cervical lymphadenitis,that is responsible for swelling in neck,pain on degulitition,internaly you will be having enlarged congested tonsils,at places septic foci on tonsils and rest of pharynx (internal aspect of neck),this infected and ulcerated pharynx is responsible for blood in sputum,there always remains threat for further sweling which may obstruct the airway therfore you are being given steroid along with antibiotics by your doctor.
