swimmers ear&sudden hearing loss at same time?seperate issues?inner,middle,outer?

may1:snorkeling in creek
may3:right ear started hurting,applied alcohol no big deal just swimmers ear right?
may5:ear is swollen.hard to hear.during some wine, my right ear starts ringing noticeably.scary
may 7:see ent.diagnosis swimmers ear.he vacuums it, puff of antibiotic/antifungal powder,gel,cotton. says "keep it dry come back in a week".
may 12:return to ent.since last visit ive gotten petroleum jelly in my ear in my attempt to keep it dry. cant hear and lots of ringing.
he vacuums/powders same as before but less."it looks great.use vinegar.come back in a week if still problem"
may16-19:minor sore throat
may 20:***@**** bad ringing.poor hearing.wince of pain every now&then.by this point researching im convinced of middle ear fluid/E-tube issue.feel negative pressure behind eardrum that is relieved when i hold nose&blow.hearing test bad results.doc:"it is in cochlea.seperate issue from swimmers ear.maybe perm"
may22today:start anti viral&steriod
Why my E-tube bad then? seems a slim chance to get both afflictions simultaneously in same ear if unrelated. i just hope doc is wrong and my ear clears up soon. it feels gunked up it must be conductive hearing loss please!!!!
