Dear Tacia ureta I am sure your Doctor is right you have got tonsilitis. You are getting problem with your (R)ear is due to bolockage of a tube known as pharingo tymphanic tubes which connect throat with ears.It will settle down. I can suggest an old fashoned remedy for sore throat. take some warm water (tumbler full) and add couple of soluble aspirin tablets to dissolve and do the girgle twice daily. Kindest regards.
