Thanks for posting query.

It seems that he got infection in poked ear causing fever.

As lobules of ears are more vascular, it is possible that there may be blood collection over the part resulting blood clot around his ears and blood is good medium for growing bacteria causing infection.

Consult a Pediatrician and go for antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicines for 2-3 days.

Apply antibiotic cream after cleaning the part.

Hope, I answered your query. If you have further query or clarification, please ask.
I will be happy to help.

Wish you and your child good health.
