Have swollen neck glands, palate, cough, tests negative, had repeated sinus infection, treated with antibiotics, prednisone

I have had repeated sinus infections. Treated with antibiotics and prednisone. It helped but two weeks later another infection occurred. Mono is negative. Strep is negative. I have swollen glands in my neck and roof of my mouth. I end up with a cough too from pay nasal drip. I'm miserable. I don't know what doctor to see next. ENT and regular pcp not helping.
