Have cold, cough, nasal congestion, throat pain, ear pressure

Hi, I have had a cold going on 10 days. Mostly just a cough and nasal congestion . Throat hurt in the beginning then stopped. I feel like the cough and congestion are improving but today my throat hurts horribly, only on one side, and feels deep in my throat. Lately, I have had a lot of ear pressure in one ear as well.

Hello
You were having viral sore throat earlier which has almost cured but resulted in a superimposed bacterial infection of throat.
Your ear symptoms also point towards some fluid in middle ear.
You require a full and proper course of antibiotic along with steam inhalation.
Consult your doctor for the prescription of antibiotic.
Thanks
