Water went into ears, issues with ear now, blocked. What should i do?

Hi I went to my hair dresser this past Saturday 4/20, and as she was rinsing my hair she kind of blasted my left ear with the sprayer and a lot of water went into my ear. Over the last 2 days I have a problem with that ear now, and I suspect from reading on Internet that it is a Eustachian tube issue now. It is hard to describe but it s like I hear someone speaking BUT I hear a slight delay wih a kind of high frequency talking sound when someone is talking. Only in the ear that was sprayed. Ear also feels blocked a bit. I have tried popping that ear but that hasn t worked. I read on Internet to try taking something like sudafed and give it a week. What do u suggest? Thanks

THIS MIGHT NOT BE EUSTACHIAN TUBE BLOCKAGE BECAUSE EUSTACHAN TUBE IS BLOCKED FROM INSISIDE BY POST NASAL DRIP OR COLD AND COUGH
THIS IS BLOCKAGE FROM OUTSIDE
SOMETMES WAX IS THERE AND IF YOU PUT WATER THE WAX SHIFTS CLOSE TO DRUM AND BLOCKS THE EARS
YOU MUST CONSULT OTOLOGIST TO SEE THE CONDITION BEFORE TAKING ANY MEDICINE AS ONE WRONG STEP CAN PUNCTURE YOUR DRUM
