I had pain in my right ear, I went to the doctor and he gave me antibiotic (co-amoxiclav) for a week and it didn't work. I went again and he gave me an antibiotic spray. My pain is gone, only my ear is clogged and I don't know what to do, the situation scares me a bit.

I want to know if it's normal my ear to be clogged. I still have to use this spray until Saturday.
