Weird ear infection that's affecting more than his ears?

My dad had been sick for almost 3 months now with an ear infection, and the doctors dont even really know exactly what it is. It's beginning to scare me a bit because no one knows what it is and they cant even treat him for it.

Here are some of the symtoms;

Really puffy face.

Excess fat around his neck

The lymph nodes on his neck are swelling and hurting

Sore neck

Yellow fluid draining from his ear

Pretty bad hearing loss

Ringing in his ear

And dizzines

    An infection in his jaw would cause all those things. I would have him see a dentist since the problem is ongoing because if it is his teeth he could become septic if they don't figure it out.
