Otalgia: You have otalgia, fancy word for ear pain. The range in possibilities is from something inside the ear canal like an infection (external otitis), to something deeper, referred to the ear... Such as tmj, sinusitis, pharyngitis, etc....

23y.o female. Roof of mouth itching conbined with very sore throat. Fever101.6. Ear pain and itching as well. Thoughts?

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 bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat)... or when she is an adult patient who also has a fever of 101.6. ...Read more
