The inside of my ear is swollen

For about 5 days, the inside of my ear hole has been swollen, and sore when I apply any pressure. I was wondering if it was just an ordinary ear ache or ear infection, because I don't remember doing anything to hurt it. I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what is wrong with my ear, and how long it will last?
