I'm 71, female, have had an earache time, doc gave me

Customer Question

I'm 71, female, have had an earache for some time, doc gave me ciprodex. I've used it for 6 days and the earache is still waking me up at night and hurting a lot. I'm supposed to take it for10 days. Now my glands are swollen in my neck, too. It is in the ear canal, not the inner ear. Doc said it looked pretty raw six days ago. I don't know whether I should use it tonight and tomorrow morning or not. I can't see the doctor until tomorrow afternoon. Any advice?
