After 7 days of both of my ears being clogged up, I finally started looking for a remedy. I don't know if it was coincidental, but my ears became clogged after I had a bad sore throat for about 8 days prior. After reading every single idea on this web site, I decided to go see the doctor about my ear problem. He inspected the ears and said I had a build up of wax in both ears. To get out the wax, the doctor's technician put hydrogen peroxide in the right ear, while I was lying on my left side. After about 3 minutes of the peroxide fizzing in my ear, the technician had me sit up with a bowl on the bottom of the ear to catch the peroxide and water and any debris. He then put warm water in a syringe and squited it in to my ear to try to flush out the wax build up. While flushing out the ear, the wax ball the size of a small piece of chewed up chewing gum came out. He tried the same procedure on the left ear, but after about four tries he stopped. He then prescribed some stool softner pills for my ear. He said to take one pill and poke a hole in it, then let the liquid in the pill go into the ear, letting the liquid sit in the ear for about an hour. He said do this the day prior to the next appointment and 2 hours prior the appointment the day of with another pill. So I did this and went in for the doctor to try to get out the other wax ball. This time he mixed warm water with peroxide and put this solution into the syringe to flush out the left ear. This time the wax build up came out the first try. Good luck and I hope you get relief like I did.
