I have an earache (secondary infection following a cold). This is day 10 of the cold and day 5 of the earache. I've seen a doctor who advised antibiotics, pseudoephedrine, and heavy-duty cough syrup. I'm four days into that and I still do not feel much better. A little better, but not BETTER.
My ear still aches a little bit, it still feels congested, and I still have muffled hearing. How long will it take to feel better - how long until my hearing comes back - any tips on how to make this go away faster or how to be more comfortable? The things I normally do help my sinuses but DO NOT help my ear.
