well, im a fifteen year old girl. I'm worried about my older brother he has one swollen ear. It happened a year ago and it never disappeared. It did reduce in swelling. Today my brother came home with his ear being really really swollen. About twice the size itwas before. Problem is he is austistic and is unable to tell us whether he is in pain or how he got it. The doctor seems to be of no help since he didnt do anything much to help before. My brother does not live with us and we did not take him to the doctor. His caretakers do. I looked it up online and possible causes is a change in new medications.

Any advice ideas would be great.
