The ball like swelling could be infected lymphnode along with surrounding inflammation.
As corticosteroid has anti inflammatory property,the swelling might have subsided temporarily.
I prescribe antibiotic and anti inflammatory medicine to my patients with similar complaints.
If you come back with ultrasound report,i will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
