Thanks for the info. I checked for mites and didn't see any. Plus I just treated her/wormed her about a month ago.Facial swelling with a discharge from the ear sounds like ear infection.
Ear infection can be from respiratory illness, bacterial, fungal or viral infections and sometimes ear mites. Check her over well for any external parasites. You can try dropping a few drops of Hydrogen Peroxide in the ear to boil up the discharge/any debris, remove as much gunk as you can, then apply triple antibiotic ointment into the ear.
Antibiotics may helpful, you can use Tylan50 or Amoxicillin, but having a vet determine the cause and prescribe the appropriate medicine and treatment plan is always best.

I have Tylan 50. But wouldn't know how much to give. Do you have an idea?
Thanks for your input.
