Sometimes Antibiotics given may not work, so a different on may need to be prescribed.

Yes you can trust your GP.

Give your GP a chance to clear the problem. The problem with antibiotic medications they are not as effective as in the past because of misuse, over many years by people asking for the drug when they ineffective.

Arthritis of the jaw can cause pain in the ear, sometimes if the pain is in the upper jaw this pain may cause soreness in the ear. This will cause redness, Dermetone, around the ear.

If you have a biological infection in your ear an antibiotic may be needed, sometimes this can be problematic, until they find the right one

I do not know what to suggest if you have lost trust in ENT, you could discuss this with your GP and a new Specialist may be found to help, however it is a cleft stick in some ways, if you go back to the same hospital the alternative Specialist ?, will be using the same nurses etc. Have you been given any medications for your Arthritis, or are you going to see a Rhumi for that. The last time I had problems with my jaw I had to have words with a Dentist if you are uncertain ?

What are you taking, in a pain medication, if your GP has given you or suggested something or not check with a Chemist, they may recommend a NSID medication like IBUPROVEN they should reduce the inflammation

Try warm compresses on the side of the face and rub a NSID cream in the effected area of the jaw only
