It sounds like: You have a sore throat, also known as pharyngitis. Its also causing your ear problems, if recurrent you may benefit from a nasal steroid to reduce allergies that can predispose you to this problem. Good luck.

Nasal steroids will help for allergies and ETD, but may take a while to work. So I suggest you try an over the counter anti-histidine with decongestant while waiting for the steroid response. Eustation tube exercises can be helpful to decrease likelihood of developing negative pressure, effusion, or hearing loss. Hope this helps further.
