Clogged ear, difficulty in hearing post using twisted sheet of paper to relieve itching, used ear-drops. Treatment required?

Hello? I tisted a sheet of toilet paper to itch the inside of my ear. That was two days ago. When I did it, it relieved the itching, but it hurt really bad right afterward. The pain went away in a while, but it then felt clogged. I think some hearing might be lost because when my phone was ringing I could not easily locat it as I normaly can. I used some eardrops yesterday and it seemed a little better. Today I feel like my ear is clogged, like it has water or something inside. I am trying to decide if I should go to the hospital or see a doctor, or if it will just get better on it s own. What should I do?

ENT Specialist 's  Response
You might have got swelling of ear canal after itching. You should take
Tab cefpodoxime 200 twice
Tab diclomol thrice
Tab allegra 120 once
For 5 days
Then see some ENT SPECIALIST near you to get your ear cleaned if required. Dont put any drops without consultation.
