Thank you! No rush!!

Dear *****ient in this case it is an infectious process, it is probable that it is due to an insect bite, so I suggest you go to the consultation because it is necessary to indicate antibiotics to reduce this process.
You should not be alarmed as it is a mild infection but you should start antibiotics.
Ideally, you should start with Amoxicillin/ac clavulanic acid.
You should take ibuprofen for pain every 8 hours.

if it's the same medication.
ibuprofen 200mg house 8 hours.
Impresses an ear infection , it should be examined well to see what caused it, but most likely it is an insect
