I had an ear infection/ache about a week ago that has subsided. My ear no longer feels “stuffy” and I can hear out of it fine. The problem now is that I have pain and a swelling feeling deeper “behind” my ear and above my jaw. Closing my jaw completly so that my uppper and lower teeth touch increases the pressure/pain. I have antibiotic that I have been taking since the ear infection and am still taking but it doesn’t seem to do anything for this situation. I have also been taking ibuprofin which helps with the pain and seems to make the swelling go down a bit, but it returns as soon as the medicine wears off. I’m not seeing any drainage or anything coming out of the ear.
