Well the key to the correct diagnosis here is having someone who looks at a lot of ears examine yours. When you have 2 different doctors prescribe 2 different medications for your problem and you have no improvement, one has to wonder. I see a lot of people who were incorrectly told that they have fluid in their middle ear, when they have none and people who are told they have an outer ear problem and prescribed drops, when in reality they have a middle ear problem where drops have no chance of helping. The best advice is to have an Otolaryngologist take a look at you.
