Any advice for patchy sore right throat, itchy inner ears, restless sleep in a 37 yo female?

Hi Dr. Grief, I have a sore throat, mainly on right side, worse when I swallow, swollen glands in throat that are tender to the touch. Had restless sleep all night tossing and turning, sweating and chills. I feel like I have a fever but no thermometer to check. Looked in my throat just now and there are really gross looking white/yellowish/greenish patches...more on right side. Inner ears kind of feel itchy and I have a headache. I've also felt a bit nauseous in the last 24 hours. I feel a bit achey all over too. I'm a 37 yr old female, surfer and yoga instructor and generally speaking am quite fit and healthy. Any advice or recommendations? Thanks, Katie

Hi,
From history it seems that you might be having acute follicular tonsillitis on right side giving rise this problem.
Due to infection you got enlarge, tender and swelled lymph nodes.
Go for one course of antibiotic like Azithromicin for 3-5 days.
Take anti-inflammatory medicines as well.
Avoid cold drinks and junk food.
Ok and take care.
