Depends: It depends on a few things. One would be her age. If she is a child, i might be concerned for an ear infection. If her symptoms started with congestion, the earache might be from the congestion causing pressure on the ear. A decongestant might help. If this is the case, it is likely a virus but you may want to see your doctor to be sure it's not an ear infection.

Dr. can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is very sore, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). The doctor will also look into the ears to check for an ear infection.
