Autophony and tinnitus

Hi folks. Just wondering if I could get some advice.

About 2 weeks ago I had an ear infection in my left ear and I was prescribed ear drops and antibiotics. I think the infection is gone because it's not longer swollen and I have no pain. However I still have a sense of autophony (sound of voice seems loud in ear) and I also have a slight constant ringing in my left ear. It's usually unnoticeable unless I'm in a quiet room or sleeping. For the autophony it's very annoying when I talk because I can hear myself very loudly and then I tend to speak in a whisper. I can't hear myself breathing though. The doctor also said I had a bit of earwax in the ear as well. I don't know if that is contributing to it and if i should go have my ears cleaned out. I was wondering if I should wait it out some more or go see a doctor. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
