I stuck a cotton bud in my ear....I know I know I know but my ear canal was sooooo itchy and I couldn’t help it 😩

Now said ear is totally blocked, I cannot hear a thing out of it so my head feels all wonky, but I can hear the incessant ringing which is now plaguing me

What on earth do I do??? Will it be better by morning maybe? Unlikely to be able to get a microsuctioning appt at such short notice but I need my ear back!

You’ve probably just dislodged a large piece of wax . Buy yourself some Otex Express , it’s supposed to work very quickly , costs about £9 so double the price of normal Otex .

You can get ear wash things from the likes of Boots, like a medicine syringe that squirts water into the ear, which obviously then drains out, bringing the debris with it. Assume one could also use a medicine syringe and warm water but not tried it myself. The bought kits do work though.

Thanks both....had hoped I might wake up this morning and it be back to normal-alas!

Off to the chemist to get the express drops
