Does anyone know if there's a place that opens tomorrow (easter) or this Monday that does ear irrigation or suction ?

My ear has been blocked these past few days and ear drops are not having any effect at all ( i don't think it's even reaching the insides of my ear).

The buzzing is annoying the s*** out of me.

Thanks!

Don't waste your money on these, they dont work. I have tried them and several others too and they are a waste of money.

Micro suction works wonders and is very quick. google search for your local Ear Nose and Throat clinic.

You sure it's wax on the outside, and not glue-ear?  If it's the latter a clean out will do na-da, go see a Doc.

Glue-ear ? What in the world is that lol, never heard of it.

I think it's ear wax ...because what happened was I was fine about a few days ago until I took a shower and accidentally sprayed the water at my ear...then I think the water must've created the blockages by gathering up the wax (ew!)

There's some stuff called (I think) Audiclean you can get from a chemist that washes them out.

Failing that, head to A&E and tell them something is stuck in your ear.

Any open a&e medical place will fix that for you. It's a job usually done by a nurse staff member.

I feel for you man.  I've got a bunged up ear myself.

According to the nurse that fixed my ears, my body produces too much wax and gave me a prescription for drugs.  She said one a day for the rest of your life.  I said, "No thank you!"  If anything, the wax has preserved some hearing after playing guitar and drums for a few years, haha!





Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

Btw cant see the video but the whole ear candle thing has a very bad rep with medical professionals due to the high risk and cases of damage.
