Suggest treatment for sore throat with ear pain and headache

I have had a sore throat for more than a month now. I had a mild cold which didn't last long but sore throat is persisting and it's only ever on one side at a time, and changes sides every few days. The side that it hurts the ear hurts too and a headache. Should I see a doctor about it?

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of sore throat along with ear pain and headache which seems to be due to left over upper respiratory tract infection leading to eustachian tube dysfunction. Need not to worry. Visit ENT specialist once and get it examined and start treatment after thorough examination. You should get otoscopic examination done. Take proper course of antibiotics such as Levofloxacin along with antiinflammatory medication such as Levocetrizine. You should maintain complete oral hygiene. Do warm saline gargles. Put otogesic ear drops. Avoid pricking ear with any sharp object.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
