I feel like my ears are filled with water, its like when you just had a swim and water enters your ear, however this feeling has lasted for over a week now.
Should I be concerned? Is this an ear infection or something?

Hello,

Thanks for your question.

Feeling of water inside the ear can be suggestive of ear infection.

This can be bacterial or viral infection.

Blockage of the eustachian tube connecting ear and the throat also can cause this problem.

Allergies and the infections are toe common cause.

Mysticdoc :

You can try a decongestant like pseudoephedrine 60 mg every 6 hours which helps usually.

Bacterial infection requires antibiotic course.

Viral infection gets better over time without any treatment.

This is not concerning.
