Get rechecked asap: If you are diabetic, go to er for recheck, otherwise, urgent follow up visit with your dr or an urgent care or an ENT to be sure is not an infection of the cartilage of the ear and just an uncooperative external otitis ("swimmer's ear") in need of med change.

Cellulitis: It seems you have developed periauricular cellulitis as a complication of otitis externa and need oral antibiotics please see a doctor. I am guessing you have warmth, erythema and edema (inflammation) of the affected ear.
