    Hi Kimberley,

    It is still a viral infection. Since your immunity is low now you might have developed a secondary ear infection. This is not unusual. I am sure you know that when one is ill he or she is likely to pick up other infections more easily because the body as a whole is weaker. If you are becoming more ill then you should consider visiting your doctor again. For mild pain you can take paracetamol or acetaminophen.
