Itchy ear, throat and congested nose. Is it an infection or allergy?

Hi, I woke up a couple days ago with my left ear quite itchy. The left side of my throat also seems to be itchy. Just today, my left nostril is congested and runny. I am a woman of 21 years of age and I have never had allergies before. Could this be the start? Or is it an infection. I swim occasionally, but not enough for swimmer s ear.

Hi, Ahuong,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you are having infection in your left ear and congestion in the throat as ell.
Most probably due to swimming you might got the infection.
Take some decongestant medicine,do warm salt water gargles or Listerine gargles.
If needed you may go for antibiotic medicines.
Ok and bye.
