Hello and welcome to health care magic,

Three months and three rounds of antibiotics calls for concern.

You need to do these:
-get an CT PNS
-Get an endoscopic examination of the vocal cords
-get an FNAC of the node
-get a throat swab

get the above and get back to me or any ENT with the reports as soon as possible

regards

Dr Sriram Nathan
