Dr. can check throat: Infections of the tonsils, throat, neck lymph nodes, or sinuses, can cause sore throat, and neck ache or headache. For some people, ear pressure or ear pain can also cause sore throat, and neck ache or headache. A primary care doctor can check to see if it is a routine problem such as strep throat, which needs antibiotics. For pain, there is Tylenol, (acetaminophen) Motrin, and other OTC cold medicines.

See his doctor.: It sounds like he needs to be examined by his doctor. Even though he doesn't have fever, and this may be a viral illness, he should be seen to rule out strep or other treatable illness. Meanwhile you can give him ibuprofen or acetaminophen for the pain, if he has no medical contraindication to doing so. Also, make sure he is drinking fluids.
