Sore Throat Accompanied By Right Ear Pain?
Hello, I’m 19 years old. 3 days ago coincided on Wednesday I experienced a sore throat accompanied by 38.0 fever. no btuk and flu. I did not have time to take paracetamol and therefore I drank water. the reason for my inflammation is that I ate spicy food for two days and didn’t drink water at all. Then I was advised the FG Troches drug. I had taken it yesterday and now I have taken it 3 times and then stopped it. Finally I tried an alternative with soy sauce and lime and warm water. The pain was not too annoying and I was able to swallow even though it still felt sore and itchy. But, now my right ear hurts as if it feels full but not too ringing only feels a little painful and annoying. How is that? Is it because of inflammation or something else? Thanks.

Complaints of the ear feel full can be caused by various things, including:
Earwax / accumulated earwax Infection of the ear Infection of the respiratory tract, usually inflammation of the airways causes the ear to feel full, for example when a cold is characterized by a sore throat (due to inflammation) Water ingestion Being in a high area Foreign body in the ear For looking for the exact cause certainly needs to be done a thorough examination. Starting with a medical interview to get full information about symptoms, physical examination and ENT, and additional supporting examinations.
With the current spread of Corona virus infection, if there is no emergency emergence in the ear such as discharge from the ear like fever, presence of foreign body in the ear, or sudden hearing loss, it is better to delay seeing an ENT specialist and maximize initial treatment at home like:
Ear compresses that feel full Avoid scratching the ears If there is pain in the ear, massage Paracetamol to relieve Avoid greasy and too spicy foods, avoid cigarette smoke, and stout drinking to deal with strep throat which affects complaints of full ears
