Hi all, I hope someone can help me as this is causing me considerable worry.
Basically, I have tinnitus in my left ear. I have always suffered from excessive earwax but this has been worose since I developed tinnitus in January.
So, I used to blast shower water into my ears. However, after a nasty middle ear infection and tinnitus after a home syringing went wrong, I have stopped doing this. I now use olive oil drops once a week and try to scrape out loose earwax wih my pinkie. I also try to never get water in my ears as I have heard this can cause an external ear infection?
Anyway, I kind of feel that it's just a matter of time until I get an earwax blockage again. Is there anyone out there who has this problem? How do you cope? Any tips? Thanks x
