Swollen Ear Cartilage?

My 2 year old son seems to have some sort of swollen ear cartilage, it is red and swollen & feels alot like a blister.
Any ideas?
I called the Dr.'s answering service and the nurse had never heard of anything like it.
She said to come to the hospital within 24 hours. Should I go now to the ER or wait until the morning when urgent care is open?

  • Hmm well the only thing I can think of is maybe a bug bite of some type. My brother got stung by a bee on his ear and it was HUGE!

    I'd say if he has no other symptoms (fever, looks infected, complaining of pain) then wait until morning.
