  1. Hi Mayank,thank you for posting your query on Medimetry
    I have gone through your query and can understand your concern.
    Looking at your symptoms,you might be suffering from fungal infection in the ear due to water going inside ear.
    You may find relief by taking following medications:

    Analgesic with Antiinflammatory like Ibuprofen with Antacid like Rantac,

    Antihistaminic like Cetrizine,

    and Antifungal ear drops like Clotrimazole
    Also dont allow water to go inside ear while taking bath.Avoid self cleaning of ear.
    After taking the above measures,if still your symptoms are not relieved in 3 days,then it would be advisable to consult an ENT specialist doctor for ear examination.
    Hope this answers your question.Take care.
