ENT Specialist 's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

I do not see the rational behind using olive drops in the ear when you are having throat and neck discomfort. My advice to you is to get a complete evaluation done by a good ENT specialist to look for any mass in the neck which could be giving rise to all these symptoms. Do not delay as the symptoms seem to be suspicious of a mass in the neck.

Hope this answers your query
