Throat Pain

I had the most strange taste of a pepper -explotion in my mouth... and now have a sore place in my throat, the pain goes up in my ear ..??? What can this be, and do I need to see a Dr.? I also had a dermatitis 'rash' in my neck, can this be something else or related??
Thank you

Dear Anne
This could maybe a herpes zoster infection - do you have blisters on your neck? If so, please see your GP as soon as possible. Infections in the throat causes the glands in the neck to swell and can give referred pain to the ear.
