Probably it might have to do with it. See for if it happens again. Then you can see a doc

I don't think even a single shot of steroids was required until there was definite indication of severe throat inflammation leading to respiratory pathway compromise. Anyway none of the medicines you told are related to your nonspecific problem of clear white discharge in stools. You have to mention your age also.

welcome to healthcaremagic
as you were having quizy stomach along with sore throat may be some intestinal problem may be associated
some antibiotics affects intestinal flora and may cause loose motion along with mucous
a stool examination will help
along with antibiotics medicines like vibact ds may be taken once daily
