I have a double ear infection I've been to the doctor they gave me ear drops and an antibiotic the ear drops wont go in how can I get my ear uncloged ?
May need a wick: Hard to tell without seeing your ears, but it sounds like you have otitis externa (outer ear infection). Sometimes when the ear canal gets so swollen, the drops won't go through, and your doctor will need to insert a wick into your ear canal to "pull" the medicine through so it can work. ...Read more
My right ear feels blocked with ear wax if I use ear drops will it make Eustachian tube dysfunction worse in that ear? Or should I get it flushed?
What's in the ear?: The doctor will want to know what is in the ear. He has to look in the ear. Otherwise, he has to guess what's in the ear... unless another doctor just cleared out the canals. If so, it is presumed that nothing is in the ear canal. In a normal person, without a hole or a tube in the eardrum, ear drops will not go beyond the ear canal, so most drops will not directly affect the eustachian tube. ...Read more

My middle ear and its not draining. Did the afrin (oxymetazoline) causes my eustachian tube to swell up after i stopped using it?
Medicine Overuse: Afrin should not be used more than once every 12 hours for a maximum of 2 days, or you risk blockading the very receptors that decongest. Ask your doctor for prescription nasal steroid spray to treat the edema & underlying problem. (you also risk hypertension with nasal decongestants). ...Read more

I Have buzzing in my right ear & ENT special gave me a nasal spray. Now buzzing is switching between ears? Could the spray be causing this 2 happen?
Unlikely: Nasal sprays usually help opening the Eustachian tubes and clear the middle ears, and probably that was your ENT doctor judgment, there are several other causes for ear buzzing in either external or middle ears, so long you don't suffer dizziness or vertigo or any other symptom of the inner ear, wait till you get to see the ENT doctor again or check with your GP you need to be reevaluated ...Read more
Would an ENT see me without a referral? I have narrow ear canals and I do get wax but on ear drops. Could narrow ear canals affect my hearing?
Sure: America is a free country, so a patient is free to choose her doctors, and her doctors are free to accept her or not accept her as a patient. Otherwise, we would not be free. Sometimes, one's insurance plan has limitations, so buy PPO (instead of HMO) insurance so that a referral should not be needed. Also, seeing a doctor outside the network (may be self-pay) should not require a referral. ...Read more

Did my sore throat lead to my ear infection? Does this need to be treated? Can I just use ear drops
May be related: Middle ear infections often arise after a cold or other process involving the upper airway/throat/adenoids/tonsils. If a specific germ is dominating the others in the area, they can affect both your throat and middle ears. If it is viral it will pass in a few days without treatment.If bacterial, oral antibiotics will be needed.Drops are unlikely to be helpful in this case. ...Read more

I have used hyrogen peroxide directly in ear for ear wax and during ear wax hudrogen peroxide goes in ear & after it i feeling lose my hearing more!? Its demage inside ear!? Can u plez suggest me what to do !?
Peroxide for earwax: Peroxide progressively breaks down earwax with repeated use. I recommend that my patients use 5 drops in their affected ear 2-3 times a day for 7 days when their ear is filled with wax. It is not unusual for ear to feel clogged and for hearing to be muffled until the wax resolves. You can see your local otolaryngologist for a thorough ear cleaning. ...Read more
