Pain and soreness in the ear. Possible pus formation. Had chicken pox in the past

Hi, I woke up with a sore ear and assumed I had been lying on it so I turned over. Then I woke up again and it was throbbing and quite painful, upon getting up I have found a large pus filled thing on my sopha and my whole ear is bright red. I have had chicken pox once before. Any ideas as to what it might be? Thanks in advance.

I have gone through your query.
It suggests that you may be suffering from acute otitis me.
For this disease I personally advised
1.Proper local antibiotic- ciprofloxacin
2.Antiallergic drug
3.Nasal decongestant

Avoid putting water, oil,ear bud etc in the ear.

Hot fomentation to relieve pain.

Wish you good health.
