The emergency center should have told you to contact your regular doctor or given you a referral to an ENT (Ear, Nose, Throat) specialist for follow-up.

Keep taking the anitbiotic till they are gone - you do NOT want to stop in the middle, as theat can result in the infection coming back worse and then resistant to the antibiotic. After 5 days you should be seeing reduction if not complete abatement of the symptoms.

Contact your primary care physician for a checkup on it, because prolonged infection affecting the inner ear can cause permanent deafness, not to mention the possibility of it spreading to your sinuses or brain, which can get VERY serious.

That could be dangerous as you may have a perforated eardrum if you have lost hearing. It is probably so swollen fron the infection that is the most proable reason for the hearing decline. A short course of steroids woll usually help bring thevinflammation a little quicker.There is a mixture of equal parts of oeroxidecand alcohol you can use for swimmers ear to dry them up.
