In brief: Sore throat

Do you have fever? One sided sore throat with referred pain to the ear need to be checked by your doctor ASAP, it could be tonsillitis, or peritonsillar abscess which is a serious condition that requires immediate treatment with IV antibiotics & sometimes incision of the abscess , if you can't see your doctor today go to ER, please do not delay.
I hope it is just a throat infection. Good luck
