Virtual HT: You may upload a photo of your throat to an inbox consultation with Healthtap for review and if you have no fever, there may be another cause such as an allergic reaction or local irritation. Your ear pain should be evaluated, but there is often referred pain from the throat which may be related to your ear pain. Please check neck for lymph node swelling and tenderness. Notify PCP of findings.
