I was diagnosed with "swimmers ear" and the doctor prescribed ear drops. For the past few days my ears have felt very clogged. Is this normal?
My right ear is clogged with dry ear wax. I've tried using ear drops on it, but it hasn't been working. My mom says cotton tips are too dangerous as well. I only have about $2 right now, so I don't know what else I can use to get it out.
If you have insurance you should see a docotr for a procedure called an ear lavage. Ear drops are placed in the ear, then the ear is irrigated with another solution (typically hydrogen peroxide) to dislodge the wax. A doctor can then use a special instrument to remove any remaining wax. If you do not have insurance tell your mom to find a free or low cost clinic in your area.
Best of luck. ...Read more
