Hello,

He might have observed that fungal growth after gentamicin ear drops so he advised candibiotic ear drops.

It is not useful for ear wax. so you may use dewax ear drops to liquify the wax.

If symptoms not improved please consult your ENT specialist he will examine and remove the wax by syringing technique.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hi there. Wonder if you can help at all. My sister has had a problem with her ears lately, she feels they are blocked up & when listening to loud music in a car her left ear starts crackling. She s never felt any pain with her ears since they ve felt blocked but she has just informed me that she has recently been inhailing cocaine & wonders if this is causing the problem? She has just put ear wax remover drops into one of her ears & is feeling a popping/crackling sensation but is not in any pain. Can you tell me will this help to clear her ears or will it harm her ears because she she has been using this substance? I m so angry/ashamed of her right now & I m too scared to take her to a doctor. Hope you can help & that what I m telling you remains confidential. Thank you.

Hi for the past 3-4 days my ear has been clogged. There is no pain just discomfort. I went to my pediatrician today (I m 18) and she told me there is not a lot of ear wax and no infection and that I should just use my ear drops. I m just wondering when I will feel relief because it feels the exact same and if there s something else that i could do?
