Hi, Wednesday night I had some pain on both if my ears and was told to start using ibuprofen. On Thursday the pain was extreme and I got an appointment with a doctor. He confirmed I had a double external ear infection. My right ear was very swollen almost completely shut. He said my eardrums didn't seem perforated. He gave antibiotic drops. The pain was extreme so I took ibuprofen and tylenol. My ears were a bit clogged, but nothing big. The pain was extreme friday and saturday. Pain is strong, but no as bad as before today. The problem is now my ears are extremely clogged. I can feel something (fluid move is being stuck there). One feels pressured and the other one feels fluid moving and clogging it depending how I'm laying. I cannot hear well. I hear an echo or differently when I talk. My husband was adding the drops and he used my phone flashlight and he said he could see something that seemed like fluid build up. I'm still using the eardrops as directed because the pain is no joke, but I'm going crazy with the clogged ears. Here is a picture he took and you can see it. Unfortunately, I lost my insurance a day before it all started, so I'm already paying Thursday's appointment which was $300. If this will resolve on it's own, I'll try to not go to the doctor. But my question is based in thr picture anf symptoms is a normal process of ear infections?? Adding::" on friday I messaged the doctor letting him know I had fever and body chills he saif that's not part of an external infection, but since then I had fever 2 more times and that's it.
Any help is truly appreciated.
Didn't know how to upload a picture. But it shows yellowish fluid in my ear canal just sitting there. Both ears burn a bit.
