I have a terrible ear ache, and it is constantly ringing and painful sometimes. But I haven't been to see the doctor for my ear infection, and it’s been like this now for a long time..

Published: February 03

I have had this ear trouble for a couple of years and no physician has ever told me that I may have something other than earwax in my ear. I could not stand the pain and itching anymore while taking a final exam and went to the doctor. They told me it is an outer ear infection, swimmer’s ear. I believed them, only I went to the pharmacy and got an over the counter ear wax removal kit. It has part peroxide in it and a bubble syringe to wash out the rest of the wax. I have done it ten times at least for every other day or two..
