Suggest treatment for severe ear pain

I have been having terrible ear aches. My inner ear was swollen until I recently applied some peroxide. The swelling went down. But my bear still feels clogged. It will be clear for about a couple of min, but then i can feel it get full again. I noticed the other day that there was purple stuff in my ear. No more pain just clogged. Sometimes I get the feeling of something leaking, but nothing never comes out. I recently noticed a bump behind my ear at the top of my ear lobe (lower hairline). Could this bumpbbe a result of some infection and should I try the peroxide again?

Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, if this is the otalgia then it could be due to infection and it could be fungal infection and it may be associated with wax impaction, antibiotic and analgesic can be used, if this is the antibiotic ear drops then best would be Gentamycine ear drops and in oral antibiotic Amoxicillin is best 500 mg three times in day hope this information helps.
