My MIL noticed that a small section of my little mans ear was red yesterday, this was at about 5. Last night when I got up to use the bathroom he said our son was complaining about it before bed, and now his ear is entirely red and hot to the touch. I haven't called the dr yet...any ideas on what it is? Could it be a bug bite maybe?

I'm no doctor for sure, but just by putting the symptoms into the symptom checker on www.webmd.com, it sounds like it COULD be cellulitis. It may need antibiotics if it is. I know that redness and warmth to the touch can often mean an infection, so he should go to the doctor today. Here is the link to what I found on cellulitis:
