Hello and welcome to the forum,

Its almost certain you deserve a consultation from an ENT point of view. A throat exam is needed and in your case, this should certainly be a bacterial infection of the family group A streptococci. A past history of sinusitis compels ascertaining integrity of sinus with specific sinus incidence X rays to know if there is pus collection to be drained or not. Left undone, spread to near by structures like brain and mastoids could be an eventuality and could be very dangerous.

Consult your physician from a fast examination, rapid giving of antibiotics to prevent complications,

Thank you,
Dr Njong Ndive.
