Hello Missanistia,

Has it been confirmed that you have inflammation? Is it strep throat, tonsillitis, or both? Do you mean inflammation is pain in the throat? Sore throats (especially when swallowing) can be caused by strep throat, tonsillitis (or both at the same time), stomach acid disease, irritation of the throat due to dry air, and diphtheria.

If there is true inflammation, inflammation is often caused due to a viral infection, but does not rule out bacterial infection. Sore throat can occur together with a cold. However, if colds occur very often or for a long time, it is necessary to think about the causes of colds besides infection. Colds that often recur can be caused by arthritis, sinusitis, or nasal polyps.

Anatomically, there is a channel that connects the ears of the nose and throat, therefore during colds there is sometimes a buildup of mucus / fluid behind the lining of the eardrum when a cold. If you later experience an infection, otitis media / inflammation of the middle ear can occur with symptoms of pain in the ear like you experience. Inflammation sometimes can also cause more severe pain until the ear feels painful.

If you experience colds, sore throat and ear pain very often, I suggest that you see a doctor directly so that further tests can be done to determine the cause. If needed the doctor can see inside the nasal cavity, throat area, and ear canal using special tools. Then the doctor can give you more appropriate treatment. Handling will be tailored to your condition, for example with decongestants, corticosteroids, painkillers, antihistamines, antibiotics if there is a bacterial infection, to surgery if necessary.

For the time being you can do the following tips:

Avoid foods that stimulate / trigger complaints Use air humidifiers Avoid smoking and cigarette smoke Consumption of warm food and drinks Drink plenty of water Avoid stress Avoid digging ears too deep Try the ear does not have fluids Hopefully it can help you,

Thank you
