My Ear Has Been Clogged 7 Days How Can I Unplug It
My ear has been clogged for three weeks after using hydrogen peroxide. It's hard to hear and I just got over being very sick. how do I get my hearing ?
Get checked.: See your doc, or go to an Urgent Care center and have your ears examined. Only by looking at your ear canal and ear drum can the cause of your hearing loss be evaluated properly. Hopefully you have a wax buildup and your ear can be irrigated then and restore your hearing. Don't put Q-tips or any other object in your ear canals! ...Read more

Hearing loss: Hello. Yes, now is the time to have your ears checked by your doctor. After you've tried the different methods that you have, there could be a wax impaction against your eardrum. A simple cleaning may just do the trick. Good luck. ...Read more

My ear became irritated and started hurting after the doctor irrigated it to treat impacted wax. Do I have swimmer's ears or has my ear just been probed too much?
See ENT Doc: Your answer is quite good. If the irrigation was performed by a family doctor and not a specialist, then you could have a mild external otitis (inflammation of the skin of the ear canal) or all of the wax was not removed. When wax becomes impacted (wax on or near the ear drum) then a specialist needs to remove it. Remember, never use q-tips to clean out your ears. ...Read more

My right ear has been plugged for about a month now i could slightly hear out of it but not all the way, how can I unplug it! i've used proxide.
Best to see MD: It is best to see your doctor to evaluate the wax . If it is easy to remove, they can irrigate it, or soften it first then do that or if needed the ENT can suction out the wax. Don't use qtip as it would push it against the tympanic membrane. ...Read more
Eustachian tube: You have eustachian tube dysfunction. This is blockage of the tube that drains the inner ear. Usually happens with a head cold or sinus infection. The structures around the tube swell when you are sick, and that blocks the tube. It will clear, but can take 10-14 days. Don't "pop" your ear on purpose, it could rupture. Try phenylephrine (ask the pharmacist for help). For ear pain or fever, see a dr ...Read more

My right ear has been blocked for two weeks, the ENT said I have fluid behind my eardrum, what can I do to help remedy?
Pop your ears: Assuming you don't have a past history of ear problems this is likely a temporary issue. Pinch your nose and blow to clear your ears, just like on an airplane. Many ENT docs will use an oral steroid and then, if the fluid does not clear, make a small. Temporary hole in the eardrum to drain the fluid. ...Read more
My ear is blocked (pressure and lost hearing) after using the neil med sinus rinse. I tried yawning to pop it and a q-tip. How can I unblock my ear?
Wax Impaction: You probably moistened a near complete wax impaction and made the blockage complete. This may require an ENT doctor to fix but you can try dissolving the wax. Debrox and Cerumenex are good at this. I suggest repeat usage several times a day until the wax dissolves. If it doesn't after a day or two time to see the doctor. Seeing a ENT rather than your pcp is recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Last winter i briefly got sick. In my left ear, ear wax has been stuck behind my ear drum since then. Will this heal over time?
I cannot heat as well.
Get checked: Unless there's a hole in your eardrum (perforation) you cannot have wax stuck behind your eardrum. More likely, there is mucus in there but, it should not last a whole year after a cold. You need to be examined by an ENT who can evaluate your ear and hearing health. Expect to have formal hearing testing done when you go in, called an audiogram. The whole thing should be painless. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lately I've been sick with a light sniffles. I blew my nose and hour ago and popped my ear..I still can't hear well..Is it safe to use ear drops?
Allergies.: That sounds like allergies. Nasal congestion, runny nose, cough, headache, facial pains and earache can be triggered by fragrances, dust mites, grass, trees, pets, environmental molds and such. There are outdoor and indoor allergens. OTC nasal steroid and nasal saline are worth a try. Ear drops won't get to the root of the issue. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi so I am traveling in 7 days my ear is clogged and I have been drinking my amoxicillin pills and putting in my ear drops. will my ear unclog by then?
Blocked ear: It is difficult to say. It appears that you are being treated for both otitis media and otitis externa. If there is fluid in the middle ear, you will have difficulty traveling by air. The most difficult part will be landing. You really should see your doctor prior to traveling and see if your condition has improved. There are other treatments that can be used for eustachian tube dysfunction. ...Read more
My ear has been blocked for the whole day ever since i got flu.. I cannot pop my ears, but I am continuously yawning and swallowing saliva, it unblock?
Blocked ear: Often with a cold or flu, the nasal and throat linings get irritated and inflamed. This swelling will close off the tube between the ear and throat. The motion and streching of the jaw and inner tissues will allow the tube to open. This will open the airway and unblock the ear. Your md can give you some medicine to clear up this inflamation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
