Actually you are already taking antibiotics.Pther approach is to get throat swab done to decide more ideal antibiotic. Warm salt water gargles,anesthetic mouth gargles and steam inhalation can help.oral antihistaminics can help relieve throat congestion and open up ear tube, this will reduce ear pain.
