Hi about a year ago I had three sore throats in six weeks a mix of bacterial and viral, ever since I have had small red dots on the back of my tongue?

Red dots

Tongue
Dots on the back of the tongue are normal;larger taste buds. If you are worried have your dentist or oral surgeon/MD take a look. 5 min for piece of mind. Go West ham United even though they are being relegated.

Can sore throats result from having someones tongue in your ear?

No

Neck-throat
The short answer is 'no'. You would need to have something of theirs in your mouth to make your throat sore.

Do sore throats get red brownish mucus?

That can occur.

Throat_pain
For significant sore throat with swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician & get a strep throat test/ culture. If you have Strep Throat, antibiotic therapy is imperative to prevent future complications. Consider Tylenol or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Saltwater gargles: Mix 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water – gargle several times a day. Or gargle with Aloe Vera juice twice a day.

I have real red eyes,my ears hurt, and really pain full soar throat?

Otitis-Conjunctiviti

Ototis-Conjunctiviits Syndrome is relatively common and are generally self limited viral infections. However, there are other treatable bacterial causes which can only be diagnosed by a physician. In some cases a culture either of the conjunctiva or throat is appropriate. Either a primary care physician or Ophthalmologist would be equipped to evaluate.

See a doctor

Adenoidectomy
You may give ibuprofen for now and chloraseptic spray. But ultimately she needs to be seen by your doctor to do test that can rule out strep throat infection or influenza
