Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.

It looks like ear infection. It can be otitis externa or otitis media which swimmers gets constantly. It can be confirmed by examination of the ear.

I suggest you to take amoxycillin , over the counter pain killer, antibiotic ear drops after consulting a doctor.

Hope I helped you.
