Painful ear

I have a problem with one of my ears, it' s been blocked for quite some time, I went to a doctor he told me that both my ears are blocked because of wax, he gave me waxsol and antibaotics because one ear was very painful, it got better and I did not finish the course of antibaotics thinking that this week I will start using waxsol, Now the pains are back again and watery wax and some white stuff is coming out of my ear. I' m freaking out that it might be more serious than I thought AND I do use earbuds to clean the stuff out.

Please help.

Dear Candy

Please go back to your doctor and refrain from using cotton buds in your ears, they do more harm than good and actually leave the ear more exposed to bacteria. Also remember to complete every course of antibiotics that you start. Check with your doctor before using any more drops.

Please let me know if you have any further questions

Kind regards
