Ear pain that you feel can be caused by various causes, including due to friction / trauma by foreign objects, in this case the cottonbud that is used, inflammation due to foreign objects entering the ear hole, or infections that occur after intervention by a foreign object entering the burrow ear
Ear infections are common. Ear infections can occur in the outer ear, or middle ear. Infection in the external ear is also referred to as otitis externa. While infection in the middle ear is also referred to as otitis media. Both external and internal otitis can be caused by bacteria, viruses and fungi.
If treatment is not done properly, then the risk that arises will affect hearing. The hearing loss and ringing sounds that you feel are most likely related to disorders of your ear. Hearing loss is not only caused by damage to the eardrum, but abnormalities in the inner ear can also trigger the process of hearing. For this reason, direct inspection is highly recommended to be carried out.
Ideally, an examination should be done directly to the ENT specialist. An examination using an otoscope can evaluate the middle ear, assessing abnormalities in the ear hole to the eardrum.
Suggestions that you should do while at home include:
Protect the ear with a cover / protector so that water does not enter the ear hole directly
Avoid scraping the ear hole with a cotton bud or other tool
Do not do activities in the water for a while
If it hurts, take pain medications such as paracetamol
Avoid using ear drops or other medications without direct doctor's advice
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
