Welcome in H.C.M.
I have gone through your query regarding fever, sore throat and white sticky clumps on tonsils along with it there is pain in your ears also.
Considering your complaints I suspect that you are suffering from acute follicular tonsillitis with referred otalgia, You are taking medication but not getting much relief. I would like to suggest you to take broad spectrum antibiotic anti inflammatory, cough syrup and warm saline gargling to get relief.
Since it is an infective disease so please do these basic investigations-
(1) Blood - CBC, ESR, Blood sugar ( f & PP ).
(2) Culture && sensitivity of throat swab.
(3) X-Ray chest in P.A. view.

Hope your query is explained.

With Regards.
