If the CT scan is normal there there are less chances of a swelling being there.
You might have a tenderness over that area . You need to take antihistaminic and a decongestant as this could be because of the ear and due to cold that there is problem in the ear.
You should also take care of reflux disease. and maintain proper dental hygiene.
In doubt do reply
