Go to the doctor. It can effect the ear bad. If you WONT go to the doctor for any specific reason, get a lime, and squeeze the juice in your ear. You probably wont do that, but I heard it from a nurse in Germany.

Your eardrum could burst which hurts sooo much and then you can't hear. It never happened to me but, I recently had a double ear infection and my ear drum was on the verge on bursting and it hurt so much I couldn't sleep at all and I was crying it hurt that bad! Just go to the doctor!! They will give you ear drops and antibiotics. It's not that bad and sooo worth it!
Untreated ear infections can cause really weird things to happen. My best friend from childhood was raised by a very neglectful & abusive man who would only take her to the doctor if fluid leaked out of her ear. As an adult, she had to go through extensive treatments to take care of damage that had been done, & ended up with a yeast infection in her ear - a condition so rare that every doctor & nurse in the hospital she was in took a look to see what it looked like.
You can let it go a few days, but if it gets worse, or isn't feeling at least a little better after a week, see a doctor. It's the only way to get the correct antibiotic.
Your ear drum could burst. It's very painful if it happens. My eardrum has burst 6 times. If your eardrum bursts enough you can go deaf in that ear. I have bad ear infections, and a high pain tolerance, so by the time I go to the doctor my ear drum is very close to bursting.
