Ear blocked , no pain

Posted , 4 users are following.

2 weeks ago my ear got blocked so I used earwax for few days and then washed is with water bought in pharmacy.That not helped so I went to surgery to synergie that ear but I was told that it might be infection and received antibiotic ear drops.

That nothing changed.Still my ear is blocked , there is this hissing sound in my ear but no ear pain at all.Can one have ear infection without pain? Should I just go again and ask for ckeaning my ear from wax?

    Hello, do you definitely know that's it's wax that's blocking your ear, or could

    you be suffering ETD ?

    Never put water down your ears....worse thing for blocking !!  Also sounds

    as though you have tinnitus

      Yes I am using nasal spray.I still have that feeling that if my ear would be clean from wax it would help.

      Last time when I had block ear nurse said that she does not see any wax but she rinsed it and tbere was wax and the problem was solved.this time she did not want to rinse my ear even if all looked the same.

      That is why I wonder if it is just bloked ear from wax.

      If she can't see any wax, there probably isn't any, unless it's further down and actually

      sticking onto your eardrum.  Maybe you need to see an ENT consultant for him to be

      able to see better with a strong light.

    I just wanted update my post.

    I saw my GP and she said there is no infection in my ear now , tiny bit of wax only which should not cause problems but she was not able to see completely the end of canal so she refered me to ENT doctor.She mention something that drum might be perforated but could not say for sure .And as my ear is still half blocked and hissing is still there they have to check it.

    I also have one question:

    I suppose to fly on my holidays in April.Is it allowed to fly if there are problems with drum or ear in general?
