Brief Answer:
It could be Chronic infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
It could be Chronic infection.
Sometimes, acute attack may occur over the chronic one.
But,you have to be examined clinically by an ENT doctor.
If at all a swelling is visible, then you may need FNAC ( Fine Needle aspiration Cytology ) or Biopsy for the exact diagnosis.
Hope I answered your query.
