Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi ,
Doctor :   How can i help you ?
User :   Actually i used to speak through phones atleast 2hrs per day. so now i am suffering from ear pain and listening problem
Doctor :   Is the problem in both ears ?
User :   while talking only i got pain if the conversation is too long
User :   yes
Doctor :   If you have pain only while talking in the phone , then its not serious and it probably is due to the mechanical effect
User :   last week i went to beach and my ear is filled with up sand
Doctor :   In that case i would advice you to do for small head phones or blue tooth headsets. This will solve the problem
User :   but while talking with persons, their voice is not audible properly
User :   last weekend, i went to beach and my ear is filled up with sand and i cleaned with hydrozen peroxide
Doctor :   Ok, is the hearing problem since then ?

User :   no, from 3 months onwards i have been facing this problem
Doctor :   ok, using Hydrogen peroxide is not dangerous
User :   ok
User :   i have seen in news channel that using cellphones morethan 1 hour per day causes brain cancer etc...
Doctor :   well due to long term usage of cell phones i would not expect any damage to the eardrum but weakness of the nerves due to vibrations arising from the phone
Doctor :   Thats all myth, there are hazards of using cell phones but there is no reliable information on the same
User :   so how to solve this hearing problem
User :   as well as pain which causes headache also....
Doctor :   Ok, i would ask you to get tunning form tests and a audiometry to know the intensity of hearing loss then plan for appropriate management
Doctor :   and use head phones or blue tooth from now to talk in cell phones
Doctor :   also i would advice you to use SOLIWAX ear drops , Apply it from now about 4 drops twice daily which will give a clean ear for the testing
