My right ear is really sore. It started up yesterday and it became sore and feels swollen. Could there be a reason for this?

In brief: Ear pain

If you press on your ear an it hurts probably you have a "swimmers ear".
You will need ear drops to clear it up. Do not use q-tips or alcohol in your ears.

In brief: Ear infection?

Where is the swelling? Is it on the outer ear/lobe? Perhaps its a skin infection? If the pain is inside, perhaps its an infection in either case, a quick inspection can sort it out.
Feel better!
