It is very likely that you child has caught infection of the outer part of the ear. Clean the area with aniseptic lotion and check if there are signs of infection- redness, discharge, foul smell. If there is any then please visit the ENT/ Pediatrician to get appropriate treatment.

I hope you found my response to be helpful and informative. If you have any additional concerns I would be happy to address them.
