Let the antibiotics and steroid work.
There might be fluid behind the drums and if you try to rush this you could do damage.
Do not put anything in your ears, including drops.

If this does not get rapidly better you need to see an ENT specialist.
Sometimes drainage is needed...not often.
good luck
