Middle ear infection in both ears, removed wax impaction, ringing in right ear, amoxicillian, feeling pressure in right ear

Went to general practicioner and he said I had a middle ear infection in both ears. He also removed a wax impaction that was in contact with the eardrum on my right ear. Also have ringing in the right ear. Took 500mg Amoxicillian for 10 days, but I still feel pressure in the right ear. Holding my nose and gently blowing after a shower last night, I noticed that it seemed air was blowing out through my left ear, but my right ear was still plugged up. Not sure what to do.

The wax was not removed fully from your right ear,most probably.Please see an ENT practitioner,they may be able to clear it fully.Another possibility for blocked ear is Eustachian tubal dysfunction,blocked tube aerating the middle ead.but you have taken Antibiotic for 10 days which is adequate.You may use nasal drops ,followed by steam inhalation for 5 days,which wil relieve this.then if no relief get your ear seen by ENT Doctor..may need cleaning.
