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.
