Thanks for posting your query.
With the available described symptoms, there appears to be possibility of acute upper respiratory tract
infection with spread to middle ear by Eustachian tube.
Presence of enlarged lymph
nodes with itching in ears suggests the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and ENT surgeon simultaneously and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for complete blood count
, erythrocyte sedimentation rate
and chest x ray, throat swab culture and sensitivity.
You should also go for laryngoscopy
for better clarification of throat.
Ear check up is mandatory to rule out ear pathology.
You should take complete antibiotic course, decongestants and mucolytics.
Avoid cold drinks, oily and spicy food.
Perform gargles three times in day.
