Had a cold for a month, went to my ears, developed an ear infection and blocked eustachion tubes. Nurse said she could see blood and pus in worst ear. I have antibiotic ear drops and the pain is almost completely gone but I'm am still unable to hear in the bad ear. Infact, the hearing has got worse and can't hear anything if I block the other ear.

I still feel ill and exhausted and I'm starting to worry the hearing will never come back. AIBU?

I had repeated ear infections, eardrum perforations and grommets as a child but this is my first bad ear infection in 30 years. My doctor warned my mum I would have hearing issues in later life due to the damage back then.... but this?!!!

You need oral antibiotics not just drops
