Hi, when I touch my ear or clean it it is extremely painful and is red and swollen inside I cannot touch it or eat properly with it. What could it be?

In brief: Could be infection

An infection of the outer ear can cause those symptoms.
Antibiotic drops frequently help, but you need to see a doctor first.
