      Hello!

      One month ago I woke up with a plugged ear, I used Debrox to try to remove wax but nothing came out of it, the ear got better and sometimes it unplugged for a few hours and then plugged again.

      Since a few days ago, it's not as plugged as it was before but it doesn't get unplugged at all and I noticed only yesterday that I can have ringing inside my plugged ear (don't know if it was there before).

      Should I worry? Not sure if it's worth to mention but my right ear has not been dirty since I felt it was plugged and I usually have to clean my ears every day.

      Thank you.

      Have you seen an ENT doctor? If not, that's your first step. Don't delay, as some treatments require quick action.

      I went to a doctor and she said she saw an inflammation on my ear, can this be the cause? Now I'm taking ear drops for this, hopefully it'll go away..

      Nexus97,
      Stay positive the drops will do it's job and your ears settle down from your noise.
      Try relax and don't get stressed about it and give it time even a week or two after finishing the drops.....lots of love glynis
