Sore ear, difficulty in hearing, night sweats. Immediate treatment required?

Hi, My 18 month year old daughter had a cold that turned into an ear infection . I then caught her cold from her about 5-6 days ago and now I have a very sore right ear and can t hear properly out of it. I have had night sweats for the last few nights. Do I have an ear infection and if so is it dangerous to wait and see the doctor tomorrow or should I try and see one tonight? Thank you!

Hi Bannanika,
Thank you for choosing HCM,
Its upper respiratory infection which cause eustachian tube block and hence ear blockage and and hence decreased hearing.
You should start on antibiotics like amioxiclav and symptomatic relief will be by decongestants and NSAIDs.
Its better to show to the doctor today itself because sooner you start the treatment, better will be the result.
Please don't neglect.
