I have a question for y'all. Have any of you ever had a blocked ear? My right ear is totally blocked. I can't hear out of it and it hurts. It's so annoying. It is really messing with my anxiety too. Do y'all know any remedies? Thank you 🥰

      There's drops called Debrox for wax that might work.

      This might sound stupid but take a few shots of benedryl

      Please don't use too much peroxide. That seems to be the general consensus, just please be careful.

      My left eardrum has burst many times due to this very thing. Ever since the fifth grade ugh. What I've found works really well is a concoction that was given to me by the herbalist. It's basically just simmering garlic in olive oil, straining it, letting it cool and using it, a couple drops at a time, in the infected ear. Garlic is a natural antibiotic. It used to be I'd pop it on a hot water bag just to get the relief! But ever since I've started the garlic, I've been able to avoid the ER. I pray for your relief soon, I know how much that s**t hurts.

      I recommend going to a pharmacy and buy earwax softener it’s safer than trying to make your own concoction because too much peroxide in the ear can be a bad thing.

      I just remembered that my Dr told me to use mineral oil twice a week. A couple drops in each ear to keep the wax soft . Once you get things sorted, you may want to try that

      Get them flushed asap or you might get an infection. Speaking from unfortunate experience :)

      A warm compress could help!

      I've often used Wally's ear candles. But online.

      when this happened to me I went to the Dr and they irrigated my ear which worked very well and even felt good.

      Peroxide helps mine but yeah I half hear in both sometimes. It acts up the same as my sinuses it's annoying cause I can't hear my volume

      A mix of room temp water and peroxide in the ear, hold for a few seconds then tilt the ear over a towel and let mixture drain, it might need repeated a couple of times c:

      Put several drops of peroxide in your ear and plug the opening of your ear with about half of a cotton ball to keep everything in, and try your best to sit or lay with that ear pointed up. Give it at least an hour or 2 before removing the cotton. Then use one of those blue bulbs(the ones people use a lot for suctioning the boogers out of babys noses) to gently flush out your ear canal with warm water. Have someone help you out if you aren't comfortable trying it on your own. You can find the blue bulbs for a few bucks in any store's pharmacy department if you dont already have one. I had A LOT of problems with my ears when I was growing up, and I did this all the time

        @NervousDepresso thank you. I got one of those bulbs. I'm gonna get some peroxide and try it.

      Recently I was at the Dr for a checkup and they noticed that my ears both were blocked with wax I couldn't reach with a qtip. They flushed them out on the office for me.

        @Hortense don't use qtips that's what happens

        @Hortense I'm hoping I can get medical care soon too. Thank you.
