Soreness inside of ear since 1 week, swabbing with hydrogen peroxide, swelling behind ear

I have a had a sore (or something) on the inside of my ear (under the upper Helix ) for about a week. I have been swabbing a q-tip with hydrogen peroxide in there. It seemed to be getting better and then got worse again. (I don t know if it was becasue I stopped using the peroxide because it appeared to be getting better). This has caused my ear to be somewhat swollen and soreness behind my ear running down my neck .

With the history provided by you, it is not possible to say what is the reason for your symptoms.
One has to examine you to find out what is wrong in your ea
So please consult a skin specialist or an ENT specialist to get explanation and treatment.
Hydrogen peroxide is not likely to help.
Take care.
