I feel like one of my ears is slightly tender, slightly swollen inside, definitely waxy. Can it be an infection? Cleaning it with an ear bud is a bit sore but it's the external skin inside that's sore, not the drum. I've never had my ears syringed or anything and I think there's definately wax there but I've never had this 'swollen' feeling before (it's been like this for months ).
I know I should go to dr but it is 2 weeks at least for an appointment so I keep putting it off.
If you're having your ear syringed firstly you can get the nurse to check, and to do it. Secondly you need to put drops of oil (olive oil I think is what's recommended) for two weeks to loosen the wax before they can syringe it, so that would be good timing for a two week appointment.
