In brief: Ear infection

Is it the ear canal or the middle ear that is involved? For outer ear/otitis externa/ swimmer's ear there are otc treatments available.
Dizziness, however, suggests otitis media & possible labyrinthitis (infection/ inflammation in the balance mechanism). Otc decongestant may help; otc dramamine (dimenhydrinate) (low dose to prevent side effects) can help with dizziness. If not better in couple days, see fp for tx.
