Suggest treatment for pain in the ear,throat and jaw

A couple of weeks ago I finished a round of augmentin for a sinus infection that caused pain to the entire right side of my face, including my ear, throat, jaw and all down my neck. I m still in pain and when I move my neck I hear crackling in my ears. I know I have bad allergies but I have nothing in my nose to blow or clean out. I don t have sniffles or runny nose. Just pain on the right side. Ear pain is not severe but not mild either. It s been hurting for over a month. What is wrong with me?? Is there someway to fix this without taking more antibiotics? Are they just treating the wrong issue??

Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to an upper respiratory tract infection. The pain that you are feeling can be related to a reactive lymph node. You can use anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the pain. If the symptoms continue, I suggest to see an ENT specialist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
