Hi. U could be having an eustachian tube dysfunction
with an early otitis media
, i.e, infection in your middle ear, which explains your pain in the ear while swallowing. Can you recall any respiratory tract
infection/cough/cold you had recently? Please do salt water gargling twice a day and steam inhalation with plain water 2-3 times a day. For the pain, you can take paracetamol
500mg twice daily for 3 days.If the pain persists or you develop fever then antibiotics may be required.
