I've been through a round of antibiotics and drops to clear up Swimmer's ear but still have fullness and blockage in the ear as well as hearing loss. Should I wait it out (11 days since onset) or go back to the doctor?
I would go back to the doctor, until this thing is totally resolved. Ear problems can be painful, and affect your balance, your hearing, and your overall health. Perhaps you need another medication...but whatever you do, stay out of the pool, and follow dr's orders, until you are well.
