What are the causes of having recurring ear infections and taste of ear wax in mouth?
I have had ear infections all my life. the last two weeks i have been ablt to taste the ear wax in my mouth. quite gross if you ask me. I also am always smelling ear wax. I was wondering why? I wen to the doctor an got antibiotics for the ear infection but it still hasnt helped.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice. It is likely that the infected secretions are coming into your nose and mouth via the eustachian tube (tube connecting your nose and ear). Please meet your ENT doctor, as you may need some tests to confirm this and for controlling the infection.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Thanks, Dr. Satvinder Bakshi
