Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain and swelling in the tonsils are likely to cause you are experiencing tonsillopharyngitis, which is inflammation of the tonsils and throat. This condition is often caused by infection, can be a virus or bacteria. But other factors, such as irritation, dry throat, allergies, gastric acid reflux, immune disorders, malignancies, etc. can also aggravate this condition. In addition to pain and swelling, tonsillopharyngitis can also make your throat become phlegm, hoarseness, cough, runny nose, fever, jaw stiffness, and many other complaints. Inflammation in the throat and tonsils is also prone to spread to other areas around it, including the soft tissue around the neck and ears. This is most likely which then makes your neck and ears affected.
Some other conditions besides tonsillopharyngitis, for example enlargement of the thyroid gland, enlarged lymph nodes, parotitis, cellulitis, otitis media, jaw joint disorders, etc. may also trigger complaints like you are experiencing at this time. Therefore, the danger or not your condition will depend also on what is the underlying cause.
Therefore, you should check your complaint directly to the doctor or ENT specialist, considering the complaint has lasted for 3 days. Physical examination, laboratory, X-ray, to biopsy may also be recommended by the doctor if it is deemed necessary. At home, you can do first:
Drink more warm water, may also add honey, ginger, or lemon juice
Don't talk too much let alone shout
Rest more regularly, and earlier
Eat foods that are easy to digest and can moisturize your throat, for example porridge, broth food
Limit eating spicy, coconut milk, and other foods that contain pulp and gas
Do not smoke
Use a mask
Take paracetamol for pain and swelling that you feel
Hope this helps ...
