Ringing ear and ear infection
Yariene posted:
Almost 3 weeks ago my ear started to ring but today I started to get an ear ache, my ear feels clogged and I feel pressure in it. Also my ear feels tender and it started to get swollen. Was the ringing the first symptom of my ear infection? The ringing will it go away? I'm seeing an ENT on monday but I worry that my appointment is too far way and my ear will be damage. What should I do? Go to my primary doctor? Wait?

I forgot to say a week after my ear started to ring I went to my primary doctor and he gave me neo/polymycin/HC E/SOL. but it didn't do anything.
