Just Answer is an advice service only, we do not prescribe.

You can attend a pharmacy to ask for topical drops which would not require a prescription. This would be for an Otitis Externa. However if you feel unwell with it, you should attend an Urgent Treatment Centre where they can examine you ear and then provide antibiotics if necessary.
