Hello Ditaseptia, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The nasal cavity and throat are connected to the ear by means of a tube called the Eustachian tube. The Eustachian tube functions to regulate pressure in the middle ear so that the pressure in the middle ear is the same as the outside air pressure. If you have an infection in the nasal cavity and throat, the function of these tubes can be impaired so that the pressure on the inner ear can be disturbed. In addition, this infection can also spread to the middle ear (causing otitis media) through this tube. These two reasons can cause ear pain. Therefore, if you feel pain in your ear, you should check with your doctor first so that the doctor can do a direct examination of your ear to determine the cause because the two conditions will be treated differently. The doctor will also examine your tonsils and determine treatment for your tonsils.
Please avoid consuming spicy and oily foods and consume more water. You can also gargle with warm salt water to help relieve sore throat. Please take pain relievers such as paracetamol to relieve earaches.
