May be Drug Allergy: The name of the ear drops being used has not been given however the discomfort described may be due to an allergic sensitivity or reaction to one of the components in the ear drops. These types of reactions are not uncommon and a change in medication may be necessary. Recommend you return to your doctor for examination to determine the cause of your symptoms and make medication changes.
