Pop in the ear on burping, feeling of water in ear. Serious infection or curable with drops?

I recently became sick a couple days ago. My symptoms are: headache , dizziness , fever, shivers ,hot flashes, occasional cough, VERY sore throat , and stuffy/runny nose. Now every time I cough or burp there is a pop in my right ear. It feels as if my ear has water in it, like it s muffled. My dad bought me ear discomfort drops, called Ring Relief. Is it something on the line of serious infection or is it treatable through the drops.

Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding your chain of symptoms as sore throat, fever, headache, nasal congestion followed by fullness in ear, pain and pooping in ear.

your symptoms are in favour of upper respiratory tract infection which has reached to ear via Eustachian tube ( tubular connection between ear and throat ) thus giving feeling of fullness in ear and later on discharge.

As for as treatment is concern you should take broad spectrum antibiotic, anti inflammatory, anti histaminic, and nasal decongestant drops. Don't use any ear drop.

I hope above treatment will help you, failing which you please contact E.N.T. specialist for thorough examination to reach to correct diagnosis and treatment.

With Regards.
