Hi AAA
Thanks for posting your query.
Do you have difficulty in swallowing?
Presence of cough, fever, and probably tonsil involvement suggest acute viral/ bacterial pharyngitis and involvement of ear indicates spread of infection up to middle ear.
Most of these infection are viral in origin and persist for 3-4 days and ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic. It wont work on viral infection.
Nasopharynx and middle ear are connected by eustachian tube and infection may spread up to middle ear.
You are getting headache because of same neural innervation of nasal mucosa and brain.
You should consult with physician and ENT surgeon and get thorough check up before taking any antibiotic randomly.
You should go for laryngosocpy for exact status of your throat.
You should go for throat swab with culture & sensitivity.
You may have strep throat infection.
You should also take complete antibiotic course (to prevent secondary bacterial infection), anti-inflammatory medicines.
You should also perform 3 times gargling with lukewarm water and pinch of salt.
Put your views also.
Take care,
Dr.Mayank Bhargava

Hi Doctor,
Thank you so much for your reply!
I don't have difficulty to swallowing. I thought it happened because of bacterial infection..I was having cough, so I thought it will cure both..So for virus attach I have to take another medicine? Am worried to consult a doctor because of fear..How can I control this throat pblm except gargling in salty hoty water. Pls suggest me some remedies to avoid it further. Hope you never prescribe medicine through online..so I am not asking doctor..Once again thanks a lot doctor..

Hi AAAA
You should avoid cold drinks, oily and spicy food, sour edibles.
Viral infection has 3-4 days disease span after which it subsided spontaneously.
You should also take hot tea for clearance of your throat.
You should consult with physician and should take medicines on written prescription.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
