Hello My son got diagnosed with tonsillitis yesterday and

Patient : Hello 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. Thank you. Jennifer.
Symptoms:  Red swollen upper half of the exterior ear.
