I have had mono for a week now and my tonsils are still flaring up and it hurts to swallow and to talk...now my ear hurts....what should I do?

Hello. : Hello. I can't diagnose the reason for your symptoms. However, you may have a virus or a cold. That could create congestion/ swelling which makes it painful to swallow and is putting pressure on your eustacian tubes. The eustacian tubes empty fluids and pressure from the inside of your ears to the throat. If they are not draining properly, it can be a source of pain in your ears. Here are a few suggestions: 1. Gargle 3 to 4 times a day with warm salt water. 2. Try use of an over the counter oral decongestant. Hope you feel better soon. By the way, if the sore throat is a predominant issue, recommend getting a streph throat test. ...Read more
