The ear drops you use need to be clarified whether you are prescribed according to the doctor's prescription or you are buying the drug free. Ear pain is not always caused by a blockage in the ear canal due to ear wax. Ear pain can be caused:
Outer ear canal infection, infection in the back of the eardrum (can occur in a period of more than 2 weeks or less than 1 week). Ear injuries due to the inability of the ear to adjust outside air pressure with air pressure inside the ear canal. Symptoms that appear are usually ear pain, ringing and headaches. This condition can usually occur after diving at a certain depth, boarding / climbing a mountain.
From the complaints and symptoms that you write down, there is swelling in the neck area around the ear and pus discharge from the ear canal accompanied by pain may be caused by an ear infection. You should stop giving any type of ear drops and see a doctor immediately. The doctor will trace your complaints and symptoms, ask your patient's history first and do a physical examination, especially the examination of the ear canal. The doctor will conduct medical treatment in accordance with the conditions that you experience. If your earache is due to an eating infection the doctor will give you ear drops containing antibiotics and possibly oral medication to relieve pain and bacterial infections.
Meanwhile, to relieve pain, you may warm compresses to the swollen neck area, avoid using headphones / earphones, do not scratch the ear canal, and keep the ear from getting in the water while bathing (for a while, avoid swimming activities).
