Persisting throat pain post treatment for strep, ear infection with painful sore on tongue, difficulty in swallowing, ear pain. Normal or treatment required?

i just stopped taking medicine for strep and ear infection two weeks ago and i noticed my throat still hurt for awhile now, but then i realized that it was my tongue that was making my mouth hurt....i have a sore on the back left side of my tongue and it hurts to swallow and also makes my ears hurt as well!! Is this nothing or should i go to the doctors?

It may be possible that you have developed a mouth ulcer due the antibiotics given to you for ur infection.If its of recent onset then there isnt anything to worry about. Take multivitamin tablets twice a day and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Despite this if the ulcer persist for more than a week then I would advise you to visit back the Dr who treated you to get a comprehensive check up. The ear pain can be due to the same if the ulcer is in the back of the tongue and its supplied by the same nerve as the ear.

I hope you found my response to be helpful and informative. If you have any additional concerns I would be happy to address them.
