In brief: Most pharyngitis...

...is due to a virus, even when white patches are present.
Amoxicillin and other antibiotics have no effect on viruses. This should improve on its own in a few days. If it doesn't, return to your doctor to be checked for other, less common problems, like mononucleosis.
