Hot red swollen ear

My one year old daughter woke up and her ear was red. I didn't think much about it other than she must have slept on it hard. When I put her in her highchair for breakfast - I felt it though and it was hot and much thicker than it generally is. It is double the thickness on top of the other ear. What could be going on ?
