Suggest remedy for persistent sore throat and ear ache

Hello, I went to an Urgent Care facility yesterday for the following symptoms: sore neck, ear ache, sore throat. They tested me for strep and mono but never inspected my nasal cavity or felt my tonsils. I have no fever but the pain in my throat, neck and ears feels worse. Do you have any ideas of what this could be?

From your description of the disease, you are suffering from viral sore throat. Although there is no cure for a sore throat caused by a cold virus, there are ways to help you feel more comfortable. Drinking warm liquids, gargling with warm salt water, sucking on ice chips, or taking an over-the-counter medicine may relieve symptoms of pain or fever. When you are sick with a cold, it is also important to get enough rest, eat a healthy diet, and drink plenty of fluids.
