Welcome in H.C.M.
I read your query regarding pain in ear and not responding to steroid drop (sofracort).
I would like to tell you that sofracort ear drop is an steroidal drop and it is basically used for-
(1) Allergic disorders of ear.
(2) For treating swelling of ear canal along with systemic antibiotics.
(3) In C.S.O.M. for treating ear discharge
Since your pain in ear had increased after use of this drops indicates you may be suffering from from-
of external ear.
(3) Malignant otitis externa
To differentiate above conditions you should contact an ENT specialist
for physical examination and C & S of ear pus. Once the diagnosis is made, treatment may be paned.
