Hi and thanks for the query,
Looks like you have ear as well as throat infection.
You can take an over the counter pain killer for the ear ache and the sore throat.
You can also use decongestant nose drops like otrivin.
Otrivin will unclog the tube that connects your nose to the ear, thus improving ventilation of the ear which inturn helps to control the ear infection.
For using otrivin properly please read the instructions on the crimp.
Instill drops 3 times aday for 5 days.
You may also require an antibiotic, please consult a doctor for the prescription.
Do warm salt water gargling 4 times a day, avoid cold foods and air conditioning.
Dr Kishori.
