I went swimming a few days ago, and I had some water in my right ear. I tried draining it, but it didn't really work. Well, as time went on, the ear started hurting. So, I got some over the counter ear drops hoping that would help. Then I woke up the next morning, the pain was almost gone, but now I have this ringing in my ear, that just won't go away. Its been about a week, and I just don't know what to do. I can only go to the doctor as a last resort, since I don't have insurance.
