You need to get to an ENT doctor and have it examined. The symptoms you describe certainly do sound like it is an inner ear infection that has damaged the ear drum and poked a hole in it. If that is the case. you need more than just ear drops. Find an ENT right away and let them examine the issue. They might skip the meds and try to wash out the ear surgically. Hope this helps.
