Ear infection
History- discharge ( both eye and ear) as a kid, had infection once before too, itching a common occurrence Probable cause - maybe I used my pinky finger a bit too vigourously to scratch the itch or  maybe some water entered the ear while bathing or maybe both. Present condition - noticed pain in the left ear on 11th june, ear blocked too, pain intensity increased at night ( 7-8/10 on a scale),tragus very sensitive to touch and pressure, took ciproflaxin ear drops and dolo, condition resolved more or less on 14-15th june. Now the right ear has started showing the same symptoms ( ears blocked, 7-8 pain intensity at night, additional symptom is swelling of the antihelix). What should I do? Wait for it to resolve on its own or go see a doctor during these covid times? Will online be as effective as in person consultation?
