Hello
i hope you had consulted a ENT SPECIALIST before starting the ear drop.Occasionally otomycosis(fungal external ear infectiue ) may occur in association with waxy debris or your husband might be having an underlying otitis media . Whatever the reason he needs to be evaluated urgently to not only relieve his pain but also prevent complications.At present u can start a painkiller (OTC)till you visit your ENT SPECIALIST.
Hope your husband a speedy recovery.

Hello,
A middle ear pathology (like a perforated ear drum) needs to be excluded and ear drops are not recommended unless he has been reviewed by an ENT specialist.
Suggest get in touch with one asap. Meanwhile, ibuprofen will help in lowering the pain.
