I used murine ear wax removal drop, s but I don't have a syringe or anything to flush the wax out?
Try the shower: After using the murine you can try letting the shower water run in your ear to clear the material out. As a rule, however, I prefer my patients absolutely positively leave their ears alone! The ear, in almost all cases will clean itself and you can only make things worse by trying to clean it. If your ears bother you see an ENT doctor. ...Read more

My ear felt clogged. I used murine 3 times in the last 2 days and it feels worse now. Would flushing it with more water be more likely to help or hurt?

Accidentally left Carbamide Peroxide in right ear for 20 min. Sharp pain in right ear this morning. Had an ear infection 2 weeks ago.
Pain is more likely than not from irritation of your ear drum (that's where the nerve endings are!!!) from leaving the wax remover in a bit too long!
Your infection should not have returned HOWEVER you need to have the ear checked in any case!
Get it checked out as soon as practicable!
Hope this is helpful
