Dr. Evan Wetzler answered:

When I swallow my left ear hurts and my left soft palate is sore. Why is this?

Could be TMJ

Head-jaw
If you clench or grind your teeth, the TMJ, which is close to your ear, as well as the muscles of the soft palate can get inflammed and cause these symptoms.

I think i have a soft palate canker sore in the back of my throat, it hard to put an ointment on it cause its so far back. how do it treat this?

Mouth rinse

Unfortunately there are no good remedies for canker sores and causes are often unknown. The best treatments are usually just to treat pain, not to cure the sore. My personal favorite is what most call magic mouthwash. It is 1/3 Benadryl (to reduce inflammation), 1/3 viscous lidocaine (to reduce pain), and 1/3 maalox (to make it stick). You rinse and spit or swallow. Ask your dentist about it.

Viral or bacterial

Pharynx
Common cause can be a break in the protective surface allowing normal mouth bacteria into the tissue. This is called aphthous ulcer. Another common cause is viral. Normal cold sore virus is herpes simplex. They hurt but should resolve in 7 to 10 days. Other types of infection are possible and should be ruled out with a detailed personal lifestyle and medical history by a physician.

My soft palate is extremely sore, and I keep feeling like I need to blow my nose, but when I do, it's thick blood. What's wrong?

Sinus infection

Lips
Probably a sinus inflammation and infection since the palate is sore. You might need to have a course of antibiotics.

My soft palate is really sore and I can tell the exact location of where it's sore by poking it but there's no canker sore. What is this?

Perhaps trauma

Cold_sore
Could be a burn or scratch. Could also be viral or bacterial (think sore throat). Try salt water rinses and take an analgesic. If it does not go away in a few days see your family dentist or family physician.

My soft palate is really sore but there doesn't appear to be any canker or cold sores. It has been like this for 3 days. What could this be?

Many possibilities.

Cold_sore
Palatal irritation can be caused by burns from to hot liquids or hot pizza & the like. Other causes are smoking, acidic foods such as citrus fruits, pineapple, etc. Stomach acids from bulemia & GERD is another possibility. Avoid these foods, rinse frequently with warm salt water and call your dentist if it is not better in 14 days! It could be something more serious.
