Swelling to back of left ear

Yes, I have swelling to back of left ear. It go's and comes but does not hurt. I had a response that it might be dealing with some what ear infection. Drinking some antibiotics would help or not. Let me kmow what you think?

Hi there.

These swelling may indeed be a sign of infections inside the ear and this should be checked by your doctor before any antibiotics is given or taken.  The back of the ear may also swell in response to muscle stress or inflammation.  Ear infections are usually accompanied by loss or diminished hearing as well as pain that is coming from inside the ear itself.  Or this could be swollen lymph nodes especially if you have scalp infections (like pimples or furuncles).  I suggest that you have this checked by your doctor since there are several possibilities.

Regards and God bless.
