Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Blisters in the ear suggests viral infection like shingles for example.

Azithromycin will not help.

You will need a valacyclovir 1 gram 3 times daily to treat the viral infection a week.

That will improve your hearing gradually over time.

Please discuss with your specialist soon.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
