    Default Question about antibiotics ear drops

    I have never used the ear drop antibiotics before. I started on them on sat 8 am. I have Googled but can't find a answer.
    Is it normal to feel like the antibiotics are blocking your ear. Like it's causing pressure making it hard to hear. It is very uncomfortable. The drops never seem to leave the ear even after sleeping all night. My ears still feel full of the drops and you can still see them there. The constant pressure and the feeling like it's blocked
    is driving me crazy.

    So is it normal or should I go back to see the Dr.

    I didnt use ear drops for my infections but thats what my ears felt like for over 2 months, I was told its actually the infection and inflammation that causes the hearing loss and pressure because it stops the vibration or something?

    For me, I think it feels a bit like having water in your ear for a bit.

    Its awful I've been told its a particularly bad strain of infections going around this year, I actually ended up with a ruptured ear drum from mine because I accidentally blew my nose when my ear was blocked and the pressure cause it to tear. Still recovering now, not allowed to get water in my ear!

    That was what I was expecting. Not this constant feeling. At first I thought it was swelling shut. I made hubby check.
