Welcome to HCM,
It seems that your son is having acute infection in his ear.
Do not go for house hold remedy like onion as it may worsen the condition.
consult your doctor and get examined.
With one course of antibiotic medicine he will be alright.
Clean ear with cotton bud and Put antibiotic ear drops 3-4 times a day.
Ok and bye.
