Have ear infection. Used ofloxacin otic and peroxide. Used a quip. Now can't hear. Any ideas?

I have an ear infection and have been using ofloxacin otic to clear it last night I used a quip in my ear even though I'm not suppose too and all day I have not been able to really hear out of my right ear it's like I have an ear plug in. I tired to clear that with peroxide I'm my ear but it didn't work I just put the ofloxacin otic in my left ear the one I can hear out of but now I can't hear out of that one either what is going on?!?!?!

it may be post nasal discharge going back and filling the eustachian tubes to give blockage
you dont have to put any liquid in this case as this can perforate the drum as the drum is iunder pressure
it may take 3 wk with medicine to clear the tubes
you can take anti allergic allegra 120 mg bd for 3 wk
syp priton 1/2 tsf night
and liquid antacid
antibiotics can be stopped after 5 days and others to continue 3 wk
apply neosporin h eye ointment in nose bd
put sea water drops 2 drops at night in ach nostril to clear eustachain tubes
you must consult you doctor in between to know the status of the drum but if it is not discharging it may be intact
