Help Me my sore throat is very severe

Patient : I have had a fever for a week now, I didnt think it was serious and thought I can just by medicine at a pharmacy for a common cold. but my body started to heat up, a few days towards the end of the week.. i lost my voice and my throat is severely sore and feels inflame. I could not sleep all last night because It hurt breathing. everytime I breathe my throat gets dryer and if I cough I choke. the weather is iced roads outside my regular doctors clinic is closed. I found 2 medicines I had in my apartment and I took one and pill and dont know if I should have taken it..but I read it could help severe sore throat. it is called prednisone, I also have ciprofloxacn which i havent taken.
