It is possible that you also have a mild throat infection.

Please take the following steps and see if they help-

- Gargle with warm saline water thrice daily.

- Suck at a hard sweet or toffee - the swallowing action causes the muscles of the throat to contract and relax , soothing them

- Take an anti-inflammatory medicines like Motrin 1 tablet thrice daily for at least 3 days.

- Apply a warm washcloth against the ear - it can can help eliminate congestion.

Take adequate sleep and drink plenty of water.
