Back In late June, I got an ear infection. I had never felt anything more painful than that, it started in my left ear and then in my right, all day all night sharp pains in my ears. I thought it would get better but it just got worse as the days went on. I had assumed I got some water in my ears or sweat as the summer was rough here in Portland. So I went to my good old friend Swimmers ear drying agent, and all it did was make it worse. Also, I shouldn’t have used dry ear, because my ear was so swollen from the infection that it all got stuck in my ear. so I went to the doctor after about 3 days and yep I had an ear infection in one ear in one ear and a fucking abyss in the other, my doctor couldn’t even see in my left ear but assumed that if I’m feeling the same amount of pain in both ears then both are probably infected. I also got a Covid test because I had a fever after getting checked in my ear. Also, I shouldn’t have used dry ear, because my ear was so swollen from the infection that it all got stuck in my ear and made it worse.
What’s the end lesson here? If ear no feel good go to the doctor.
