ENT Specialist 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare magic forum,usually external ear or middle ear or inner ear problem may lead to a hearing problem. Some of common problems are wax , ET tube catarrah or block, ottis media with effusion, senorineural hearing loss. You may use a broad spectrum antibiotic ear drop for 1 or 2 days but if no improvement then you must visit an ent specialist and get your ear cleaned and a proper ent checkup and otoscopy to examine the tympanic membrane and a pure tone audiometry to assess degree and type of hearing loss

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
Is there any discharge from that ear. You need to rule out if it is a ear blockage or nerve problem. Did you have running nose and sneezing before the ear problem. If Yes, then most probably it must be ear block which can be relieved by using nasal decongestant drops. Lie down and apply 2 drops of Otrivin nasal drops in each nostril letting the fluid roll back for 5 minutes. If this doesn't not help you may visit your ENT Doctor to see if there is any other problem causing this, as you may require audiometry as well.
