Sorethroat usually caused by viruses, or streptococcus pneumoniae. U have not taken any antibiotic so far, and from ur symptomatology, I assume the infection has spread on to ur sinuses and middle ear.
Though simple amoxycillin is enough for sorethroat, I wud recommend u to take a combination of cefixime and levofloxacin, since urs is an extensive infection. Along with that take cetrizine, pseudoephedrine combination, an analgesic containing paracetamol and ibuprofen and a decongestant nasal drops. Steam inhalation relieves ur headache even better.
If ur symptoms persist even after these medications for 5days, u need an ENT consult
