Welcome to HelathcareMagic forum
When you are having throat infection
or swollen glands you are not supposed to take steroids without antibiotic coverage. Secondly, you seem to be suffering from either acid reflux
disease or laryngopharyngeal reflux
. Hence you need proton pump
inhibitors such as omeprazole or pantoperazole and consumption of plenty of warm water for the treatment of the same. Avoid coffee, tea, smoking and alcohol if any.
