hello and welcome to HCM,

The solution in your case is pretty straight forward!! Go to an ENT who will assess the ear and clean the wax and tube!!

Once the cleaning is done you may need to finish the course of the antibiotic and also add an antihistamine medication so that the drum will heal

Also keep the ear dry and do not put any drops

Avoid head bath for a week or two

take care and get well soon
