Hi my ears have been hurting for a few weeks, such as loud noises, but I can hear regular noise just fine. i.e. metal clanking against metal loudly So last Friday I went to Fast Med and the doctor said my ear was congested because of my pollen allergy and she prescribed me with an ear drop for congestion called Neomycin and Polymyxin B Sulfates and Hydrocortisone Octic Solution, USP. I ve been taking it for five days now and feel like it isn t working. It feels like something in my ear is moving. Am I supposed to feel my ear decongesting ?
