I have had congestion in my left ear for almost 3 weeks. Worse this morning to point of hearing loss. Tried the peroxide, didn't do much; what has helped now I put some Vick's Vapor rub on outside of canal with Q-tip not to push too far in, then placed hot, damp bath cloth on ear re-heating it in between. Then got a Hall's cough drop to suck on while holding cloth on ear. so far it's better, some clearing. I still need to see my ENT doctor to rule anything out since I have history of sinus issues.
