Suggest treatment for swollen tonsil

Hello. My right tonsil is swollen where stuff comes out of it, my throat is irritated, I have a knot of back of neck & just noticed I have cracked lower back molar tooth. I have jaw/ear/neck pain & have low grade fever & feel awful. I was given Cephalexin 500mg 3X day (didn t work) & just finished Amoxicillin 3X day. I m on Nasonex & Sudafed and can t clear sinuses or throat drainage. I ve been in the worst pain ever & feels like my tonsil, jaw, ear, head & shoulder just want to exploid. Is it possible to have a abcessed tooth AND abcessed tonsil at same time?? (Since age2, my ear drum burst & I grew up with ear infections & pharengitis & still have those problems today. I m age48. Any help would be so much appreciated. Thanks for all your help. =)

HI
Well come to HCM
This is not the abscess of any kind and so taking antibiotic for this condition wont work here, in my opinion such case need to be treated with Tab Acetaminophen and Tab Ibuprofen 400 mg three times in day and Tab Loratidine with pseudoephedrine three times in day drink more water, have hot drink, no stress, every thing would be fine soon, take care.
