Having cyst on right bottom earlobe, swollen, painful. Hurts when opening mouth, yawning. Treatment?

I have a cyst right where my bottom earlobe meets my face.....its is extremely swollen and painful. It hurts when I open my mouth, chew, yawn, etc. I had one in the same place last year and they removed it (most of it); however it is back and worse. I am going to have it removed in a few days; however, it has started to turn purple and more painful than ever. Anything that I can do to relieve the pain. Doctor have me some percocets last week but they are not helping??

From the description of the swelling and recurrence after removal it appears that the swelling may not be a simple cyst and it need to be evaluated again with appropriate investigations for proper diagnosis before planning a surgery.
for severe pain you may take paracetamol in higher dose along with tramadol 50 mg
