Suggest treatment for itchy throat and ears with stuffy nose

Hello, For about a week I have been experiencing an itchy throat (not sore), along with itchy ears and a stuffy nose. I have taken allergy meds but this has not helped. I now feel a tightness in my chest (no coughing) and cannot taste any food. Also having chills but no fever

Thank you for asking HCM.
I have gone through your query. Your problem can be due to secondary bacterial infection after a common cold. Nasal congestion can block your auditory tube and give the symptoms you mentioned. Nasal decongestants, mucolytics and antibiotics will be helpful in your case. A consultation with an ENT specialist is well appreciated.
Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
I find this answer helpful
