Diabetes or high blood sugar is the most likely cause.
Bloood sugar wll cause sugary taste and also nausea.
Next cause is the yeast infection or otral thrush from steroid spray use.
Liver disease like viral hepatitis or gallbladder disorder can cause these symptoms.
Please see your GP soon to get blood tests fasting blood sugar, liver funtion test, a1c levels.
