Patient Question

Hello Doctor,

 

What should I do about my left ear feeling clogged when there's no earwax present?

 

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

 

Recommendation for Ear Wax Removal:

Use over-the-counter ear wax removal drops containing sodium docusate.

Infuse two drops into each ear canal.

Wait for three hours before proceeding.

 

After Infusion:

Gently clean the outer ear with a cotton swab if necessary.

Avoid inserting anything deep into the ear canal to prevent injury.

 

Follow-up Action:

If no improvement, consult an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) specialist for further evaluation and management.

 

Thanks
