Brief Answer:
Probably an ear infection, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to an ear infection.

Antibiotics may be needed to treat the infection.

In my daily practice, I generally advice antibiotic i.e. Co-Amoxiclav (Augmentin) 625mg twice a day for five days.

It is a prescription based medication, so you should consult your doctor before the treatment.

For the pain, anti-inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 400mg three tablets a day after food would be helpful.

Warm compresses can also be very helpful to reduce the pain, you may continue applying it.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
