I have a cold and my left ear feels clogged?

I have had a cold for about 5 days now. My nose gets stuffed up often and I have headaches and a bad cough. Anyways just today my ear started to feel weird and stuffed up. I also get occasional pain and ringing. It feels weird like someone is moving a cotton ball in my ear. Any ideas as to what it is and treatment? Thanks
