Infection in the ear

 Moos -
I have an ear infection. It started to be painful today midday and started to drain a few hours ago. It is unbelievably painful. I took pain meds which didn't seem to put a dent in the pain (alka-seltzer with acetametaphen and ibuprofen). I can't sleep. They say online that when the ear punctures, it relieves the pressure and there is less pain. But, the pain hasn't abated, if anything, it hurts more when it is draining. And, tomorrow is sunday - my doctor's office isn't open. What do I do?

You shoud get to the doctor as soon as you can and for the meantime, please consider getting to the drugstore for an eardrop.
