Q.

Common blocked ears

I have a problem with having too much earwax and it ends up blocking my ears. That''s when it becomes painfull. i have used sweet oil a few times and it helps but the after a while the ear wax builds up again.

When its too noisy or i hear loud music i feel this tinlgy pain in my ears. what could be wrong with my ears, please help.

Thanks

Hi,

Impacted wax (cerumen) is a common problem. I would recommend trying a different product such as Cerumol/Waxsol for 3 days prior to going to your local clinic/GP and have your ears syringed. It is the best way to ensure the wax is cleared.
I would also recommend you see an Audiologist for a full eamination of your hearing system since loud sounds should not be painful.
