Thank you for writing to us
If your pain has returned in spite of being on antibiotic for three days, it means that the bug may be resistant to the antibiotic that you took and this may require a change in the antibiotic
I would also like that your doctor should have some tests like a complete blood count and an x ray of the mastoid area as well
You also may require a stronger prescription pain medication as advil is not helping you out with your problem
Therefore I would recommend that you should consult an ENT specialist for your problem.
Let me know if you have any further questions.

A sore lymph node does mean that there is an infection
either in the ear or in the throat or in the mastoid
Mastoiditis presents with ear pain and discomfort
patients may have fever and pain behind the ear
Standard for diagnosing mastoiditis is either by a CAT scan or MRI
Treatment is with antibiotics
Are you following me?
anything else that you would like to ask?
I think that you should continue the amoxicillin for the entire duration that they did prescribe it for. Hurting to swallow means that there is certainly a throat infection as well indicating inflammation in the throat.
The ear and the throat are connected by a tube that is called as a eustachian tube
So a throat problem can cause pain in the ear or infection in the ear or mastoid as well
You are most welcome
