Left eardrum popped after I blew nose hard to clear it, feel congested in eardrum now. Why is it ?

I have a cold and blew my nose hard to clear it. In doing so, my left eardrum popped pretty hard and hurt for a while (there was also a whooshing noise that I could feel in my head for a short time afterwards). Now, I can hear alright out of it, but it feels like there s something congesting my ear drum (if that makes sense). Any advice on what it is/what I should do?

Go for one antibiotic medicine course after consulting your doctor.
Take Vicks vapor inhalation.

take care that water does not enter in the ear while taking bath.
