In my opinion you should seek medical opinion as soon as possible as there is a chance of these sores getting infected and worsening. The swelling of the tonsils is also likely to be due to infection. I would prefer to start you on a course of antibiotics till you get better. And please stay away from meth.

Best wishes.
