Our expert says:
You require urgent medical attention, as your problem could potentially be serious. It may vary from a middle ear infection and a perforated eardrum, to something more serious like a complicated middle ear infection. The swelling behind the ear is very worrying. Please see an ENT as a matter of urgency. Only a full examination can get to the bottom of the problem.
