Consult with your ENT SURGEON. Get a ear microscopy done. Pain and ear block sensation could be due to wax or fungal infection.

That pain is not because of swimming. It's because of inserting cotton buds inside the ear canal to clean it after swimming. Take some antibiotic ear drops 3 drops 5 times daily and pain killer tablets, you'll be alright in 5 days. Lesson: never clean ear canals, they have self cleaning mechanism. Throw away cotton buds.
