User:3-4 days

User:dr told its due to cold
Doctor:Apart from this problem, do you notice any other problem currently?

Doctor:Are you having nasal congestion?
Doctor:Any ear ache?

Doctor:Are you able to hear better on both sides?
User:ear ache is not there
Doctor:* I mean are you able to hear same on both sides (when you use your phone to talk) do you feel any difference?
Doctor:Are you running fever?
Doctor:Let me brief you.
Doctor:Soliwax is a ear wax dissolving agent to moisten and losen hard wax.
Doctor:and clears it out.
Doctor:You can use it overnight
Doctor:if you have a wax collected it should get dissolved and loosened to come out easily the next morning.
User:she told me to use it 3 times
User:i am feeling irritatation due to hearing my own sound
Doctor:However to me, you also seem to be having an Eustachian tube congestion secondary to nasal congestion.
User:what should i do?
Doctor:Chewing a bubble gum and using steam inhalation to take care of nasal congestion can be tried to help clear the tube congestion.
User:should i put the drop now?
Doctor:The problem should become alright in a day or two with these measures.
User:will it give any releif?
Doctor:I don't expect you to have instant relief.
Doctor:You can use it now and may be later in the night before you go to bed.
Doctor:In addition also try chewing a gum.
Doctor:You can also add steam inhalation when you go home.
User:directly in ear i should put the drop?
Doctor:Yes, soliwax is instilled directly into the ear.
User:thank you so much
User:it will be alrite by using this drop only right?
Doctor:I suggest you to combine all the measures - ear drop, chewing a gum and steam inhalation for more effective results.
User:is it really happening from cold?
Doctor:Like I said, the problem can be secondary to cold and congested eustachian tube.
Doctor:You will need other measures apart from soliwax to take care of all the problems.
User:thank you so much for your advise and time
Doctor:You are welcome.
Doctor:Do you have any other question?
User:no thanks
Doctor:Thanks for consulting me.
Doctor:Bye for now.
