Step 1

Go to the hospital and make an appointment with an ENT. The doctor will examine your ears and then rinse them with a special device. In some clinics, flushing is done with a large syringe. Fear not, it doesn't hurt at all, just a little unpleasant. You will hear much better after the procedure. If congestion occurs periodically, then visit your doctor every few months.

Step 2

If you don't want to go to the hospital or are afraid, buy a large enema (rubber-tipped syringe) from the pharmacy. Boil it well, then pour warm water into it. Insert the tip of the syringe into the ear canal and squeeze the rubber bulb firmly. Perform the procedure over a sink or bathtub. If you did have an ear plug, it will come out. It is safe to rinse your ear, but do not use a plastic-tipped syringe - you can damage your ear canal.

Step 3

In some cases, ordinary hydrogen peroxide also helps. Pour some peroxide into your ear, lie on the opposite side for about 10 minutes. Then gently remove any excess fluid from the ear. Peroxide eats away at the sulfur and facilitates its release to the outside. Perform the procedure until hearing improves. Still, you don't need to use peroxide too often.

Step 4

If it doesn't work for you, then put sunflower, olive or camphor oil in your ear. But usually, after visiting a doctor, the problem is solved. Ear irrigation alone cannot replace a hospital procedure.
