  • I have tried sinus rinse..netti pot..antibiotics.. Nasal spray..nothing workd.. This is driving me crazy!!!! Please any advice???Hi, I had this recently and the doctor said it was due to a lot of hard encrusted ear wax. I was told to put a few drops of olive oil in the ear to soften the wax, then have it syringed at the surgery to wash it out. It took a couple of weeks but the wax did soften then I think made it's way out in the normal fashion, because I did not have it syringed and I can hear fine now. You can also get sodium bicarbonate drops from the local chemist which also works. Hope this helps, not being able to hear properly is definitely a nuisance!
