ENT Specialist 's  Response
Welcome in H.C.M.
I read your problems as you said accidently you hert your ear by q-tip and now you feel pain on yawing, swallowing and pushing your tragus of ear all these are indicating that you have injured your ear drum.
You wait for two days as ear drum has got tremendous regenerating power and it will be O.K. but anyhow if you are not getting response than seek help of ENTspecialist.
with Regards.
