I had a sore throat a week before My neck and throat started to swell. it gets so uncomfortable to where I can't breath, swallow well, and can't eat hardly anything. But, my throat isn't even sore anymore. I've been giving antibiotics and prednisone. I don't know what else this could be if it isn't even pharyngitis, all I can think about is maybe it is an abscess. any advice or suggestions on what it can be?
