it sounds like you got water in your ear

there are alcohol ear drops at the drug store called swimmer ear drops which can help dry out the water in your ear

you can also try to jump up and down with that ear down and your head tilted forward which can sometimes drain the water out of the ear.

avoid sticking things into your ears like Qtips which can risk damage to your ear drums.
