For ear aches, infections and blockages, I highly reccommend using ear candles. These can be found at any GNC 'general nutrition center) and are quite affordable. You simply lie down with the infected ear facing up. Please an ear candle into the affected ear (following the package directions of course) and light it as you would a regular candle. then blow it out. It will continue to burn down. When you are finished, the blockage and pain are gone. My husband used this when he lost complete hearing in one ear because of blockage. His hearing was restored immediately. he decided to cut open the rest of the candle and see just what was in there. These things pulled out years of old, deeply burried junk. Try it once and (if you do not have a weak stomache) open up the candle afterwards and see for yourself just what was in there. I know many elderly people that do this either annually or semi-annually. all still have excellent hearing and swear by this product!!!!

Even if the candles do remove ear wax, that does not seem to be the original poster's problem. Ear congestion due to colds is usually from fluid in or inflammation of the eustachian tube - candles aren't going to help there.

If you burn one of those ear candles away from an ear, you will find the same 'junk' in it. It is residue from burning the candle, NOT from your ear!

OMG!!!! YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO PUT THE CANDLE THROUGH A PAPER PLATE SO IT CAN CATCH THE BURNING HOT WAX! YOU SHOULD NEVER PUT A CANDLE IN YOUR EAR WITHOUT SOMETHING TO CATCH THE WAX. IF USED CORRECTLY IT IS AN AWESOME METHOD. IF YOU ARE AN IDIOT DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO THIS BY YOURSELF!

I tried the candles once.

At first there was a mild suction created, (which kinds felt like it might help),but it soon ceased. as wax, from the candle melted and dripped down inside the cone blocking the little hole near the tip which is placed in the ear.

From reading these comments, the idea of stopping the 'burn' and cleaning out the wax blocking the hole, then relighting, seems like a good strategy...if ever tried again?

Also did try burning one on it's own, and it appeared to form the same 'clump' of wax that collects inside the base as when burnt while stuck in ear.
