Thanks for additional information.

All these symptoms are due to pharyngitis i.e infection of upper respiratory tract infection.

Ear soreness is due to spread of infection from throat to ear via a tube connection both cavities.

You need antibiotic. Please visit your doctor if possible an ENT ear, nose , throat specialist for detailed examination and prescription of drugs.

Meanwhile totally avoid cold drinks , oily and fried food.

You can use warm water and little salt mixture to gargle it will help in soothing your throat.

If you feel fever please take tab paracetamol it is over the counter drug.

Thanks
