Dear akash

your son has sufferign from infection of external ear, which he acquired while swimming. My suggestion to you is to ask him to avoid swimming for fewdays and let him take antibiotic and analgesic for week. Once infection subsides use ear plug while swimming which you get in any sport shop.
