Thank you for the question.
Sore throats to the ears that feel painful, especially when swallowing, accompanied by fever, aches, and itching on the body may indicate you have a sore throat (pharyngitis). This condition can be a lot of triggers, ranging from dry throat, reflux (backflow) of gastric acid, irritation or allergies, viral or bacterial infections, excessive vocal cord strain, malignancy, impaired immunity, drug effects, fatigue, and many other factors. The itching you experience, in addition to being affected by the conditions above, may also indicate allergies (including drug allergies, if they appear after you have taken certain medications), skin infections, xerosis, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, liver disorders, disorders kidney, psychological disorders, and so on.
If it's true that complaints have appeared more than 3 days, you should not let them. Go see yourself directly to the doctor or ENT doctor. Physical examination, laboratory tests, allergy tests, or maybe other supporting tests can be done by your doctor so that your condition gets better faster. In the meantime, the first steps we can recommend:
Take paracetamol so that throat pain, fever, and aches subside
Drink more warm water, may also add ginger or honey
Don't shout too loudly
No excessive scratching of itchy skin
Get more rest
Stay away from substances that make you allergic
Eat more fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C
Don't smoke, stay away from the smoke too
Use a mask
Regularly exercise to increase endurance
More diligent in bathing, diligently also brushing teeth and gargling with salt solution
Hope this helps ...
