Plan: Because of your medications I suggest that you have middle ear infection, and this take 1-2 weeks for successful recovery. Drops helpful for external otitis. You can help yourself using NS for nasal washing OTC 2-3 times a day. And you can find OTC medicine with name Sinex nasal spray. It's open your nose and your ears!!
