Observing pain in ear.

My nephew is suffering from common cold since 3 weeks. Which comes back after every 3 or 4 days, even after medication because his routine is not proper. Since two days he is observing pain in his ear mainly in night. I took him to a ENT specialist, the doctor said that his eardrums have got swollen because of common cold and advised medication. He also asked me to visit him after 3 days. Only thing I fear off is that he said we have to clean the ear if required. I don't really like the idea of cleaning the eardrums with the sharp tools they have. Please advise me on this. Also I am attaching the image of the midicines he advised. Please review on this and tell me if I need to visit another doctor or continue with this one. One more thing I want to know is how severe is the condition of my nephew as the pain comes only in night and he had only two sessions of that. Thank you.

Difficulty swallowing

I am a 19 year old male with a sore throat and a hoarse voice for months now. I have developed difficulty swallowing and breathing, food often feels to be stuck in my throat. I have a history of acid reflux that has been getting worse for the past few weeks, my physician said that it is very unlikely for me to have a tumor due to my age and gave me acid reflux medicine without further testing and told me to see him again in a month. Could he be wrong and could it be too late in a month?
