Slight hearing loss in one ear and swollen cheek bone

I am a woman in my 20s and I faced hearing loss in one ear since the last week of december, 2021. My hearing did come back after a week which is during the first week of January 2022 but a few days later the hearing loss came back. My cheek started to become swollen on 16th of January and it hurts when i eat, yawn or opening my mouth wide.
