Ear Blocked -Please shout

I'm after some help for a blocked ear. It has been like this for a week. For the 1st 3 days I used Otex Bicarb ear drops, then started using Boots Ear Drops with hydrogen peroxide. Still no joy. Is it something that "just" takes time?

Having had 4 repeat ear infections this year , I feel your pain!
Hospital stated the bicarbonate ones are the best otex and the others are a waste of time. It will soften the wax but not remove it.
Bicarbonate removes it very slowly.

I ended up on 4 lots of antibiotics for mine, and the doctors arenít doing any suringing due to COVID , I ended up at and e because mine had got so bad, and a week later I had suction , which to be honest was a joy when I could hear ( lost hearing in both ears) , one worse than the other.

Iím now on the ent list at the hospital to see somebody, I would urge you however minor to get an appointment with the doctor ( phone appointment) the longer you leave impacted the wax the worse it can get .

I also had to have antibiotics. Iím not sure if water was trapped in mine or what.

It started out as blocked ear with muffled hearing and then must have got infected as god was I in agony.

The chemist couldnít help it had to be my GP for the antibiotics. See if you can do an e consult

I have always suffered with my ears, until i had microsuction. Honestly best thing ive ever done. Not at all painful just a little uncomfortable, but much better than syringing! I have awkward ear canal and ear drims but get prrfect hearing when its done, worth every penny. I was told Otex are worst for ears and to use olive oil drops.

A few drops of olive oil helps to soften the wax, our practice nurse always requests you do this for 2 weeks prior to syringing of ears makes it so much easier.
Our son paid for microsuction last year it resulted in an ear infection and also tinnitus.

I have constantly blocked ears due to allergies. If itís internal micro suction doesnít help. If itís internal you know because itís a bit like pressure when youíre in a plane. Sometimes mine pop a little bit but not enough. I was prescribed antihistamines and a nasal spray. If you think itís internal rather than external (wax) you can but things over the counter (eg beconaise). If it continues you are best to have a medic check them out - a pharmacy where they do consultations can probably do it as it will be immediately obvious to them

That's exactly what it is like. As though in a plane & I need to pop them. I did go to Boots & speak to pharmacist & she said use drops. To be fair, I've never found Boots great. Will try my local independent.

Treat it like you would if you had a cold - olbas oil in a bowl of hot water, stick your head over, towel over your head and try and breath through your nose. Also try popping by yawning etc. If itís congestion that might help clear it. If you have pain itís looking more like infection and youíll need a Dr. Good luck - I know itís miserable and havenít found the perfect solution myself. But, if youíve only had it a few weeks, hopefully it will go.
