Welcome to health care magic forum.

Thanks for writing to us.

Pain in ear as well as swollen jaws can occur due to Inflammation of Temporo mandibular joint due to arthritis,dislocation of jaws.

Usually a clinical palpation as well as radiological investigation will help to evaluate condition underlying.

Analgesics along with muscle relaxants as well as antibiotics has to be administered in such cases.

Avoid mouth opening too widely.

Jaws has to be Immobilised for a while.

Please do visit an oral surgeon as well as E N T specialist for further concerns.

Take care.
