Your symptoms are suggestive of preauricular lymphadenitis. The preauricular lymph nodes are the lymph nodes located just in front of your ears. They drain lymph fluid from the eyes, cheeks, and the scalp near your temples. Generally, lymph nodes swell in only one area of the body at a time (localized lymphadenopathy). The problem, such as an infection, can usually be found nearby. You will require antibiotics, antihistamines, antacid and an antibiotic ear drop. The following steps may help: - Apply ice over the swollen area 4-5 times a day - Stay hydrated, drink 3 liters of water - Do salt water gargle with lukewarm water three to four times a day. - Keep the ears covered and don't allow direct entry into the ear If the problem persists or worsens visit the ENT at the earliest.
