Severe ear injury, purple discolouration, swelling. Taking motrin, tylenol. Medical attention required?

My daughter slammed her door on my 5 year old son and now his ear lobe is really purple and painful. He was awake most if the night in tears and was give Motrin every 6 hours and alternated with Tylenol every 4. Still really painful, though. Is there anything in the ear lobe or a little further up that warrants a trip to the dr.

ENT Specialist 's  Response
Welcome in H.C.M. for consulting
I read your query and I would like to tell you that such type of injury some times along with external lesions also creates traumatic perforation of ear drum. Since your child is too small to tell you about impairment of hearing, so it will be better to consult an ENT doctor for examination and treatment.

With Regards.
