Welcome to Healthcare Magic,
Due to the cold you had possible congestion of Eustachian tube that explain what you felt in your ear. Check carefully one more day your ear , if you will note discharge, blood, then you need ENT specialist consultation ( to check integrity of your eardrum , etc.. ). If there no pain, discharge, then you can consult your Family Doctor. In mean time you may try topical intranasal vasoconstrictors such phenylephrine , but no more that 4-5 days, oral decongestants such pseudoephedrine, chlorpheniramine.
I wish you good luck and speedy recovery.
Hope this helps and I have answered your query. If you have additional queries don’t hesitate to ask.
Best Regards,
