Re-evaluate: Many causes of external otitis (swimmer's ear) are bacterial and resolve quickly with ear drops, but visualized white and wet fibrous objects are not expected unless you have a foreign body (usually cotton), fungi (they love moisture!) or a cholesteatoma. I would recommend you have a doctor re-evaluate your ear.
