Thanks for your query
Your history suggestive of post-infectious upper airway cough syndrome and nasal congestion. For that you need to take azelastine-xylometazoline nasal spray twice daily along with intra-nasal corticosteroid for quick relief like combinase-aq spray. Your ear pain is probably due to eustachian tube blockage due to congestion which will be releived after these medications. So dont worry. Its very common problem after upper respiratory tract viral infection or infection by atypical organism. You must undergo the therapy which i have prescribed and you should be releived within 5-7 days of therapy for sure.
Thank you.

Welcome to health care magic forum,
Ear pain is common with stuffy nose, chest congestion and sneezing. it is due to partially block of Eustachian tube(connection between ear and throat). so don't worry. Take prescribed medicine as advised with Azithromycin.
also do warm salty water gargles two or three times in a day.
Avoid cod food and cold drinks
Take plenty of liquids orally
You will be well within 2-3 days.
