    I get them every year usually after Xmas. I use suda cream tcp and cotton wool squirted into my ear then a lickle bit of olive oil to seal and a lickle piece of of cotton wool for warmth, I am alergic to antibiotics, well most of em.

    def: lickle: very small, minute, slang for little.

    been there many times... you should get ear wax removal stuff, and flush out your ears. Not that this will cure it but usually the cause is water that has gone stagnent (sp) in your ear and the solution (hydrogen peroxide) they give will remove all of that and the wax. That and see you doctor, because you might need some antibiotics for the infection.
    Hope you feel better... I know your pain. Oh god do I know that pain!!

    Removing ear wax inside and not surface, cleaning it with cotton buds on sticks or sticking anything in your ears can cause an infection. I lost 40% of my hearing at 15 because of ear infections in both ears.

    Hope you find a remedy quick, it's a real torture, the jaw ache, the constant throbbing, night upon night of 1 or two hours sleep, good luck with the treatment.

    Get a syringe, thin one, no needle, you can get a bottle bung which allows syring to squeeze into, draw up 1 ml tcp, then 2 ml of suda cream genlty and slowly squirt into your ear(s), a little bit of Olive oil, extra virgin on a small bit of cotton wool, twist it in gently into your ear(s) to seal and take some pain killers before you sleep.

    I usually beginning of November wear a small piece of cotton wool in both ears dowsed in Olive oil to stop the icy winds going in, usually till easter so i don't get an infection. It sometimes works, last year it didn't, such a relief to sleep with out that throb.

    I did forget to mention having to sleep with a hot water bottle wrapped in a soft towel as a pillow at night, yes the water bottle has hot water in it.

    Ehhhwww.

    I used to get them all the time, the olive oil really does help. It softens the wax and lets it come out easily w/o the probing. I also found that drying out my ears with q-tips after a shower or bath was a big help. I usally reach down inside to get it all dry, using 3-4 of them to make sure that I never touch the end I use.

    The last one I had was a couple of years ago, I still remember the pain. Get better.

    Oil is for sealing, not to be squirted inside.

    I use to get these all the time when I was a kid ... I'm so glad I no longer do *crosses fingers*. :) All I can say is good luck and should start to feel better within a couple of days.

    I was told by a doc that Sweet Oil, or basicly extra extra pure olive oil should be heated to kill bacteria, then kept in a sealed container, and a few drops of it could be placed into you ear to help soften teh wax. It has worked for me, and it feels good to.

    If you have a hot water bottle, sleep tonight with it wrapped up in a towel a few times round then lay our ear on it and drop off to sleep, do it till your ear clears up.
