Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have severe swelling and redness on throat along with ear pain seems to be due to sinus infection leading to sinsitis leading to respiratory tract infection. I would suggest you to take throat lozanges. You should do warm saline gargles and take nasal sprays as well. You should take antiallergic medication along with antibiotic medication for 5-7days. Avoid intake of cold beverages and spicy, sharp and oily food. Visit ENT specialist once and get it examined. You should go for throat swab test and blood tests as well and start treatment after proper diagnosis.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
