Mustard oil in ears for cough. Why is ear in pain now?

Hi, I had cough and on the advice of my mother I have put hot mustard oil in my ear . After that , I started feeling little bit pain in my ear which eventually turned out the pain which was not controllable and had to take pain killer . ENT doctor advised my Moxikind (2 dose) and after taking that for 2 days , my ear looks like loosing its sense . Can you please advice if I need to continue the medication ?

ENT Specialist Dr. Ravinder Sharma's  Response
Dear Tanu
Hello I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon
Please do not use mustard oil in ear as it is of no use infact it can cause harmto your ear drum. I would advise you for a ENT consultation and may be your will require cleaning of ear canal with suction. OR
It may settle down on its own in due course
Feel free to contact me if you need more information about it
with regards
Ravinder Sharma
