A:   Hi.
Thanks for a short and specific information.

Since you are thinking that there is blocked ear due to an infection, the best choice is to consult an ENT Surgeon for proper clinical evaluation, examination and proper treatment.
- Please do not try anything at home as it is like arrow in the dark and can be dangerous to the ear.

Hope this helps you.
