How can pain and pressure in the ears be treated?

I perforated my ear on Saturday, it wasn t an infection, it was a q-tip accident. I didn t realize that that was what happened and took a bath tonight, causing water to get in it. Now the pain and pressure is worse than ever and pain has moved to my throat and my adenoid feels enlarged. I see DR tomorrow night. Anything I can do so that o can relieve pressure to sleep?

welcome to hcm ..please see doctor as soon as possible
for the night you may take any pain killer as paracetamoul or aceclofenic or diclofenic and any allergy or cold medicine as cetrizine or levocetrizine
if none is available you can take steam inhalation that will be beneficial
if you want to visit your ent doctor in morning ..visit any emergency room nearest to you to take above mentioned medicines so that some releif could be taken in night
