Brief Answer: Auricular lavage/irrigatio Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query. I am so sorry to hear about this plugged ear for more than 2weeks. I understand how annoying this is and the need to relief this impaction quickly to enable you feel better. Because I will nor encourage you to go manipulating the ear, Consulting with your doctor would be the best thing to do. he would either consider to remove it manually or use other procedures like lavage to address it. If the plug is initially too big ad difficult to be removed, the doctor would prescribe products like cerulyse to soften and ease removal. These would be the most effective and rapid ways to address this problem. Please, remember that is this should continue for long, you may develop an ear infection which further makes this difficult. Please, consider seeking a consultation as soon as possible. I hope this addresses your query fully.
