SORRY IF I'M YELLING....but I have a ripping ear infection and the right side of my head is congested.

I went to the Doc and have my antibiotics, ear drops, and decongestants. Unfortunately, they just don't seem to be working yet.

When I had my old raggedy hood that allowed lots of water circulation I never had ear probelms. Now that I have a hood that fits properly it is creating an environment ripe for ear infections. I am going to have to start using drops between dives.

What works the best? In my arsenol I have Swim Ear, Otic Donbarro, and Acetasol with Hydrocortisone. I know some people have good luck with just a vinegar solution.

Anyone have experience with this problem?
