Viral: The red sore throat is likely from a viral infection which however does not usually cause itchy ears. Perhaps you have a fungal infection in the external ear canals often from getting water into the ears. If so, you will need to consult your doctor to get you some antifungal ear drops (+/-) cortisone. I don't believe these two conditions are more coincidental than connected however.
