    It's a good sign that you do not feel pain. But the actual cause of the left ear turning red needs to be determined by the doctor on whether you're suitable for flying. I'm not a doctor so I can't tell you for sure the cause of it or whether it'll affect your application. If your ear turns red due to use of cotton buds then it's just purely due to irritation, shouldn't be an issue. The problem comes if your ears turn red due to decompression issues which is what the chamber aims to test. Of course ears turning red could be just a natural reaction from your body probably because this is the first time you're in a lower than 1atm pressure environment which your body will eventually adapt to. However, if it's due to other reasons that are more severe then you might need a specialist to sort it out.
    SYFC medical standards got more stringent over the years. From what I understand, they're using the same standards as RSAF so if you can't make it into SYFC due to medical, that does not mean you are not medically fit to fly as you may be medically fit as to CAAS Class 2 medical standards but not to SYFC/RSAF standards. You can find the criteria for CAAS Class 1,2 and 3 medical standards on CAAS website under licensing.
