I have a history of swimmers ear, but this was over 20 years ago. Recently, I noticed that sleeping on my left side, where the swimmers ear was, I awoke with similar pain. I used Otex ear drops and since then, the ear has been blocked with only muffled hearing in that ear. Also my nasal passages block and I use a nasal spray. I have been told that Otex will expand the ear wax as it softens, which may account for the blockage. I have used over the counter olive oil, and then discovered Otex Express which I have been using since. I have ordered an irrigation kit, but have been advised that the ear wax has to be treated for at least seven days.
I am wondering if anyone on the site has had experience of Otex. NHS will not treat, so the problem with the ear has not been professionally diagnosed. My surgery don't want to know, and encouraged me to continue to self diagnose and self treat.
Any feedback would be very helpful.
