Poured hot ear drops, ear infection,ear blocked. Treatment?

I think I may have burnt my eardrum by placing ear drops that were too hot into it. I was at doctor today and was told I have an ear infection in my left ear but the right ear seems blocked, just to put the usual ear wax remover drops in. I needed to warm up the drops but they were too hot and now my ear is throbbing and so is my throat. I don't know what to do
