Hi Ajeng, Thank you for the question.

The cavity at the back of your nose and throat (nasopharynx) connects to your middle ear through a tube / tube called the Eustachian tube. This tube functions to balance the pressure in the inner ear with the pressure of the surrounding environment. If you have an upper respiratory tract infection / flu that causes coughs and colds, this infection can affect the function of the Eustachian tube in regulating the pressure in the lower ear. As a result, you can experience pain that feels like pressure or you can also feel like your ears are clogged. Furthermore, this infection can attack the middle ear through the Eustachian tube so that the earache you feel can also be caused by an infection of the middle ear (otiti media). On the other hand, pain in the jaw is usually associated with swollen lymph nodes as a reaction to the body's defense against infection. The complaints you experience are still quite normal. However, do not hesitate to see a doctor if your complaints get worse (for example, persistent high fever, worsening earache, discharge from the ear, hearing loss, shortness of breath, chest pain) or not getting better. The doctor needs to examine you so that the doctor can provide the right treatment for you next.

Please do the following suggestions to help you:

get plenty of rest, avoid strenuous physical activity consume more water increase consumption of nutritious foods avoid consumption of spicy and oily foods avoid smoking consumption of paracetamol to relieve earaches keep your ears dry and clean Hope this information is useful.
