thanks for your query.
I think better to stop antibiotic ear drop, if its a impacted wax in ears.
Take any wax disolvant Like Waxonil or Soliwax ear drop 3 time a day for 3-4 days and then consult to ENT specialist for EAR SYRINGING, that will clear your ears.
For your cold, just take anti histaminics like Levocet.
This all will resolve your symptoms.
Thanks, take care.
