clogged ear after home ear wax removal kit?

Earlier today I tried on of those home ear wax remover kits I think Murine brand, and while it did loosen and remove most of the earwax now one of my ears is completely clogged, with pressure similar to being on an airplane, but with pain also. I've tried flushing it out several times with water, but it doesnt help. All customer service told me was if I had concerns that I should see my doctor, which is all well and good, but I cant afford it, in a cant afford it for another few months type of thing.

Any suggestions? it hurts quite a bit.

    yes , quit using the kit warm water alone is good enough. To much of the chemicals in the kit can cause damage. If you have over used the kit by all means see a Doctor.

    I have had this problem before, Just take the little bulb and keep Flushing with very warm water only. I did this for along time ,and finally A big chunk came out and I haven't had the problem again. Now I flush my ears every time I take a shower. No Q-tips that is how I believe I packed it in so bad.

    I hope this works for you ,I know how annoying this can be.

    I did learn from this though, I now understand how people with hearing problems feel.

    I put a white hand towel in the sink as a filter so I could catch what came out, this gives you an idea of your progress. You might have to repeat this 2 or3 days in a row as the warm water softens the wax, twenty to thirty minutes a day till clear is enough, You don't want to over do it and make your ear raw.

    GOOD LUCK with this.

    Call the doctor is the answer for everything. People have been so brain washed.

    first. put the palm of your hand over the ear like a suction cup. With that ear pointed down use the palm like a plunger and see if you can suck it loose.

    Second get a baby squeeze bulb and make a mix of equal parts of Hydrogen Peroxide, alcohol and warm water. Fill the squeeze bulb and squirt this into your ear with that ear pointing down again. Do this a couple of times then wait a couple of hours. Your ear should clear.

    Use rubbing alcohol to help dry up the water trapped in your ear. Take a decongestant and 800 mg ibuprofen every six hours for the pain. Next time, just use the drops and let the wax come out on it's own.

    Yer you might have pushed some wax further in while getting some out. I hear vegetable oil is a good way to fix that. Just use a few drops daily. You could also google this problem or if it doesn't get betetr see a doctor

    Call your doctor and see if they will let you come in for an "ear irrigation". and if they will let you pay so much a month......If they say no, then ask them if they can give you the number to the nearest "Clinic" in your area......

    It will be a little painful no matter who does it, but you do need to be seen by a doctor........especially since you now have pain......It can be dangerous to not have this treated, and you don't want to mess up your hearing by having something very wrong with your ear canal.....good luck.
