Hello, the way you are describing your ear symptoms it seems like you have just scratched off the skin of your ear canal.. since the skin of the ear canal is very thin it takes time to heal..
when at home please do not use cotton to close the ear canal.. since there is chance of fungal ear infection developing as cotton absorbs moisture..avoid head bath for few days to prevent water from entering the ear..wash your hands..Take a cotton bud and gently clean your ear canal.. apply antibiotic ointment( soframycin/ mupirocin) on another cotton bud and apply gently inside the ear canal.. do this twice a day for 5 days..
Take Tablet Paracetamol 650 mg as and when there is pain.. Hope this helps.
