It's inside and outside of my ear... He shoved that massive thing you look through down my ear, he said he couldn't see anything and I have a small ear infection... so he gave me some Amoxicillin and Ibuprofen.
I've finished those anti-biotics, this is a couple weeks later and it's still not 100%. It hurts a tiny bit when I touch around my ear, and it still feels a little bit blocked, and I still have that lump behind my ear, although it has gotten a lot smaller... can someone help me on this?

I am going through the same thing you are. My ear swelled up 3 days ago and turned bright red and was hot to the touch. I have been having problems w/ ringing in my ear. I went to the doc who prescribed me 875 milligrams of augmentin to take take for a week. It is only my third day, but my swelling has gone down significantly. My ear still really hurts though when I touch it, and I can't sleep on that side. I feel your pain!! What antibiodics are you taking? Do you know how you got the infection? My doc said I might have gotten bit, but I don't see a bite anywhere.. hmmmm.. feel better and good luck to you.
