All the symptoms are sufficient reason for you to consult a Doctor, preferably an ENT Surgeon.
Severe pain in the left ear with swelling, redness, tenderness, discharge of pus and blood and fever, light-headed needs urgent treatment by a broad spectrum antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and supportive medicines.
Investigations, as needed, are to be done.
So rush to the Doctors, this is already a serious problem.
