Hi, Calicozy.
Thanks for query.
It seems that you are having Acute follicular tonsillitis with formation of pus.
Due to this there is enlargement of lymph node and pain in right ear.
You may require an antibiotic and anti inflammatory medicine under your doctor's guidance.
Do warm salt water or Listerine gargles.
Avoid fried junk food and cold drinks.
Ok and bye.
