Brief Answer:
You need left ear cleaning under microscope .

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query.

If I were your treating doctor, I would advice you continue Otorex ear drop 5 drop five time a day for 4-5 day to dissolve the wax then consult ENT specialist in your area for ear cleaning under microscope.

After ear cleaning you will able to hear. Stop using ear bud it will push wax much deeper which will be difficult to remove.

Hope this information helpful to you. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Age 37, height 5'6, weight 140. No allergies to medication. Never had surgery. Currently not taking medication nor birth control. I injured my left ear while surfing today. I now have muffled hearing. Also, when I pinch my nose and blow I can hear air coming out of my ear my neighboor heard it too. He said it sounded like bubles. When I put in ear drops to get ride of the water (95% alcohol) it hurt a lot. It felt like a severe burning sensation. How should I treat? I am a flight atttendant and I have to work the day after tomorrow. Am I going to be OK to be in the pressurized environment of the airplane

Hi, good day, my daughter got ear infection, the doctor gave here ear drops to treat the ear and said if the ear don't get better then we must get antibiotics, which we did,she is using it now for the second day, but now the yellow discharge, is now green, is this normal or is the ear now actually getting worse, please prescribe what to do next?

39 yom CC: L ear. PMH: Healthy. I have small, tortuous ear canals so I get semi-frequent ear infections. When I do I irrigate my ear with 50/50 H20/H2O2 and then apply Cipro ear drops. Unfortunately, I'm out of Cipro ear drops. Any reason I can't gently apply triple antibiotic ointment via Q-tip instead? Yes, I know. Never insert a Q-tip in your ear but I promise not to ram it in like mongo. I don't want to drive 30 miles and pay $60 for an office visit just to get an Rx. So the question is whether or not triple antibiotic ointment will work. Thanks in advance!
