- You do not have a bacterial infection
- You weren’t given the proper antibiotic
- You don’t have an infection
- You have some post infection retraction of your ear drum
Antibiotics are for bacterial infections, and work if that is the problem and the bacteria are sensitive to the particular antibiotic used.
You may have not had a bacterial infection, if you did the antibiotic did not take care of the problem, or there is some healing time still to go.
Check with your doctor.

Because it is not a painkiller nor its an anti inflammatory medication.
An Ear or a tooth infection!? Tooth pain can feel like an ear pain! Go to the Doctor/Dentist!
Antibiotics kill good bacteria also! So take Probiotics, drink Kefir, eat probiotic yoghurt! Probiotics are better!
You may need a longer course of antibiotics or a new antibiotic!
The most logical answer to your question is that you may still have the infection present in your ear such that what you have been taking vs the bacteria that is causing your infection is resistant to the particular antibiotic your receiving. You need to report this to the provider who prescribed you the antibiotics because they will most likely give you something else to fight the infection. One thing you need to be aware of is not to compromise anything regarding the ear especially when infection is present due to a potential for further complications leading to hearing loss. In this day and age with all the resistant bacteria present from over prescribing antibiotics…

Apparently you have an inner ear infection . These infections are stubborn and sometimes resistant to the initial antibiotics that are given. Also, it’s also possible that the initial antibiotic was effective but have not been given enough time to eradicate the infection. In both instances, you are left with an inner ear infection that can be very painful. What you can do now is get yourself back to the doctors and apply warm compresses to the area and take Motrin for the pain. Also, a decongestant like sudafed will give some relief.
Because you didn’t have a problem that was treatable with antibiotics in the 1st place. Most ear aches are not treatable with antibiotics. But it’s a lot easier to just prescribe one then to explain this to a skeptical patient.
Why do dogs eat poop? Why do dogs eat grass?
Actress & dog activist Katherine Heigl reveals why!
this is because the nerves carry the pain above threshold level and as a result the antibiotic fails to cure the pain
If you are healthy enough you can do a 3 day fast; using juice, just fresh fruit, or water, based upon your health and take extra rest. That will likely reset your system and some probiotics daily 1–3x per day to offset the gut killers you just took (antibiotics).
You can also take some OIL OF OREGANO and rub it on the outside of the ear and lay down with a warm compress (just a warmed towel) on the ear. It is strong so you can also dilute it a bit with some coconut oil and just rub the outside of the ear; next time, you can likely skip the harmful antibiotics.

A lot of pain in your ear.
I had this once as an adult. I tried warm compresses during the night , which didn’t really help that much. Then I went to urgent care in the morning. The doctor gave me a prescription for antibiotics , and a prescription for Vicodin. He told me that often ear infections feel worse for adults than for children, so I was good with taking some Vicodin for a day or so. I took antibiotics for the entire prescription.
There is no reason to let it go on. It needs to get treated , otherwise it may rupture your eardrum, and then affect your hearing .
An ENT doctor may be better able to answer this question in more detail.
He was 55 years old, company manager, always health conscious; regularly exercised, never smoked, ate healthy food and took prompt treatment at the slightest hint of disease. So it really surprised him when he got a bout of food poisoning with diarrhea and abdominal discomfort, he was sure that he never ate food outside his home. We too were surprised when he presented to the Casualty barely six hours later with features of ‘shock’ characterized by dehydration, low blood pressure and signs of sepsis. What was even more surprising was that the culture and serology reports showed that the diagnosis was pseudomembranous colitis caused by a rare bacterium called Clostridium difficile. On probing, he admitted that he had taken a course of a usual antibiotic for his cough and sore throat 5 days back. He never thought that it could create a problem. ‘Well who doesn’t take?’ he asked.
Our gut is the home of millions of bacteria, called ‘commensals’ or healthy residents. When we take an antibiotic there is always a chance that it would kill such good intestinal bacteria and let bad ones like the c. difficile grow and cause diseases like the pseudomenbranous colitis.
David Grogan, editor of a special issue of Nature in February 2015 put this into perspective in an interesting way. He compares the friendly bacteria in our gut as law-abiding citizens occupying an apartment block. An antibiotic may kill these good citizens, making the apartments fall vacant which are then taken over by rowdy unlawful elements creating long term problem for the host. Pseudomembranous colitis is just one of them. Alteration of the immune system, and development of several unexplained diseases like crohn’s disease (intestinal inflammation) to dementias (loss of memory) could be linked to such alterations.
The fact that inappropriate and unnecessary antibiotic use not only fails to cure, but also can do distinct harm is still not understood by most of us. Inability to kill a superbug is pardonable; killing a friendly bacterium and creating nidus for a more complicated disease is not.
Firstly, you have to differentiate two things here…true inner ear infections are usually BACTERIAL infections and colds are overwhelmingly VIRAL infections. Bacterial ear infections sometimes occur secondary to viral colds, but they are not the same thing.
Now. There is evidence that MILD inner ear infections, even in children, MAY in some cases be allowed to progress without antibiotics with good outcomes. In Europe this practice is more standardized than in the US, which tends to be more antibiotic-eager.
In any event though, the criteria for what would qualify as a “mild” ear infection is something that a medical provider needs to decide. Take your child to the doctor’s office.

Which boots are suitable for men for winter?
How does the friend know that it is an infection? The inner ear is not visible on an examination, and infection cannot be diagnosed with X rays or an MRI or CT or bloodwork. There can be many causes for inner ear problems, all of which result in dizziness. Allergies, infections entering the inner ear from the middle ear, tumors, swellings can all cause dizziness, as can some drugs, alcohol, and low blood pressure. Antibiotics are only good against bacteria, not all kinds of infections, and the inner ear is pretty isolated from the blood supply so even if the infection was bacterial (which cannot be proven), the antibiotic may not even reach the area. If the person wants a second opinion, he should ask his doctor for a referral to an ear nose and throat specialist.
