Brief Answer:
Tonsillitis is possible.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I think you may have tonsillitis, an infection of tonsils. A doctor may shine a light in your throat to see tonsils.
Firstly you had a viral infection, also a viral ear infection and may have developed tonsillitis.
A throat swap is advisable.

You may need to use antibiotics.
Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further
