Few days back after a shower my ears seems to have been clogged so I used earbuds to clean them. My left ear became clean right away but my right ear didn't which is still probably clogged resulting in reduced hearing. I do not know what to do. Will a simple cleaning service from a doctor fix this?
When water enters the ear canal it can cause inflammation of the canal or it can cause swelling of the wax. If there is wax, then over the counter ear drops are available which can be put into the ear at bed time and help dissolve the clot. Otherwise you need to consult an ENT specialist for a proper ear examination, followed by irrigation of the canal. Take care!
