Brief Answer:
you are having URTI with ear infection.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.

After reading your clinical history it appears that you are having upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) with ear infection .

If I were your treating Doctor for this case , I would advice you
Antiseptic chlorhexidine Mouth Wash twice daily ,
Plenty of fluids ,
Steam Inhalation twice daily, Saline nasal spray thrice daily ,
Antihistaminic levocetirizine + Montelukast combination tab at night &
analgesic Paracetemol + Ibuprofen combination twice after meal.

You will get relief with above treatment plan , discuss with your treating doctor.

Hope this information helpful to you .If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
