Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.
It is most likely infection of the middle ear called otitis media which is common after flu. I would recommend taking a decongestant like Sudafed and steam inhalation with menthol drops in it. The main treatment is antibiotics which you are already taking. Followup with your doctor in urgent care and get your ear examined as well.

Thanks for the reply.
In case it was wax then the doctor can not see infection so difficult to rule out in presence of wax. Sudafed and steam would help though.
Please let me know if you have followup questions.
