Sore throat questions

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but here goes...

The other day my boyfriend started feeling real sick. He's not throwing up or sleeping all day but he's complaining mostly that his throat is killing him. I took his temp last night and he was at about 101.5 .

It's down this morning (100.2) and I looked at the back of his throat. His throat is pretty red and at the very back he's got some white pus looking stuff. Not a whole lot but there may be more that I can't see further back.

More symptoms:
-Hurts a lot to swallow
-headache
-Left ear is hurting (Possible ear infection?)
-Needs to go to the bathroom fairly often
-Feels cold all the time, regardless of the room temperature.


What does this sound like it could be? Do we NEED to visit the doctor for this? or is there some sort of medicine we can buy at the store? He hates visiting the doctor, and would like to avoid it if at all possible. Thanks!
