the matter given by you is inadequate to come to a diagnosis. Your pain abdomen might be due to gastritis secondary to the antibiotics you are taking. Try ppi like pantoprazole 40 mg od.

ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response
Hi,

Welcome HealthcareMagic Forum
This can be allergic condition and the the rash on the ear is not shingles as shingles will be associated with severe pain. I would advice you to drink plenty of warm water and do steam inhalation 3-4 times/day. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Also, get a through examination done from a good ENT specialist.

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar
