Hi! I have recently been diagnosed with mononucleosis I am

Patient: Hi! I have recently been diagnosed with mononucleosis. I am in terrible pain in my throat. I just started taking prednisone steroids for the sore throat. When do you think my sore throat will be gone? Also, my ears are starting to hurt. Could this be due to all the swelling in my neck and the pain is just radiating to my ears?

Symptoms: Sore throat, ear ache

Doctor:
