From historyit seems that she might be having acute infection in her external ear giving pain and swelling behind the ear.
due to acute infection she might be having symptoms like malaise, body ache, pain in limbs, knees etc.
Give her one course of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicine course for 3-5 days.
Put antibiotic ear drops.
Within a day or two she will start improving.
Ok and take care.
