Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.
It appears that your daughter had an allergic reaction , or a boil on the ear causing pink dyscolouration and and numb ness. slight pain might have been felt as numb ness. Or numb ness could be due to pressure on the nerves under the swelling. The numb ness of the glands and neck might also be due to same reason.
I advise you to consult your doctor for a follow up, for evaluation of the effect of the drugs using, and if necessory he will change the drugs accordingly.
Wishing for a quick recovery.
Best regards.
