Its is due to infection in the external auditory canal which probably happened on the abrasion u caused by picking your ear. One should never put anything in his or her ear be it an ear bud, matchstick or anything else to remove wax or to scratch. I advise you to keep your ear absolutely dry. Dont allow even a drop if water in your ear. Take tablet augmentin 625 mg twice a day. Tablet zerodol sp when there is pain. Dont put any drops till the time the pain is resolved. Wax drops will lead to increase in the pain.
