First of all let me tell you sinisitis pts having ear pain is due to eustachian tube dysfunction and this ll not get relieve with ear drops. You need to use nasal drops instead. Even taking an anti cold medicine itself ll work.

Since the pathology is from inside, due to eustachian tube block in sinusitis and cold, ear drum gets inflamed due to infection from behind (middle part of the ear), so antibiotics ear drop will not work as it would not reach behind the intact drum. In such cases systemic antibiotics, nasal decongestants and analgesics help. However for soothing effect Otogesic ear drop may be used if available as it gives topical anesthesia, but not the standard recommendation.
