Welcome to HCM

The wax in the ear is not removed as such but when you had it, first for 03 days glycerin ear drops are prescribed which softens the wax and is ready for removal and after that the syringing is done. When the wax is removed in its hard form it causes damage to ear and causes pain and vertigo. however now you have had it. The bathing have nothing to do with the wax removal. You can have bath on the first day or whenever you want. You can use diclofenic ear drops for pain relief.
