My wife and I have had painfull swollen throats for 2 weeks. Antibiotics and a steroid shot didn't help. Tested negative for strep and mono. Any ideas?

In brief: Try

Otc antihistamines.
Two weeks is a long time for an infective process so likely allergic or irritant associated. If otherwise healthy not necessarily a serious condition.
