I have excessive wax in my ear - Iused to use qtipos but stopped 4years ago - I use them only 1x a month if I feel the extreme need. 1 week ago today - I took a shower - I got water in my ear - a lot - so I used a q tip to try and soak up the water.
It did not work and stayed plugged - I could hear the water sloshing around.
I thought that it would clear later like it usually does but it is still plugged and beginning to throb and hurt.
I have taken ibuprophin to reduce swelling which seems to help.
what can I do?
