Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome,

To be able to provide you with specific information, I would need to have some additional information.

Could you please tell me:

1. Does it hurt to tug on the ear lobe?
2. Have you had a recent cold/upper respiratory infection?
3. Do you feel the pressure inside the ear?
4. Any trauma to the ear recently, such as with a Q-tip?
5. Do you hear dripping in that ear?

Awaiting your inputs to assist you specifically...
