DS2's outer ear has become swollen and red. He complained it was hot and sore a couple of days ago but now doesn't hurt unless touched. This is the second time this has happened within the last 6 months but last time both ears were affected and developed sores (one, the one affected this time, much worse than the other). The GP gave us cream to apply and it gradually got better. We have an appointment at the GPs on Thursday for something else (constant enlarged glands) so will get this seen to as well. Just wondered whether anyone else has experienced this and what it might be if it has reoccurred?
