Hello My son got diagnosed with tonsillitis yesterday and
My son got diagnosed with tonsillitis yesterday and got prescribed antibiotics. He's much better today and plays as usual, he is 7. But now he has a swollen red ear. Just the exterior upper half. Its hot but he says he doesnt feel any pain at all. He has no fever. I called his dr who thought it might be a reaction to the antibiotics and we should wait and see tomorrow morning. But now i have googled this and would like a second thought of what it can be. I have pictures if needed.
Symptoms: Red swollen upper half of the exterior ear.
