Acute bronchitis, prescribed prednisone, inhaler, cough, ear clogged used hydrogen peroxide no use. Treatment?

I was diagnosed with acute bronchitis and was prescribed prednisone and an inhaler to treat it. I still have a cough and a bit of a stuffy nose, however, my left ear has been clogged up for two days now. It's getting really irritating and I've tried putting a bit of hydrogen peroxide in my ear, as well as having a warm shower and bending my head down to try and relieve my plugged ear and nothing is working.

Thanks for query.
I would like to avoid oral steroid if i have patient like you.
I would suggest micronised dose of steroid with bronchodilator in form of rotacaps if you have broncho spasm on auscultation. You can use it with rota haler.
Steam inhalation is helpful.
Start proper antibiotic like amoxy/clav-625,clarithromycin.
Nsaid,levocetrizine,montelukast with decongestant is advisable.
Syrup containing ambroxal,bronchodilator will be helpful.
Avoid to go in dusty,smoky area.
Cover your nose with handkerchief on two wheeler.
Avoid oily,spicy food.Avoid chilled water,cold drinks and other flavored drink.
Consult physician for better guidance and proper medical management.
