I posted this same problem of mine on webMD (directly into an ear doctor's forum) and it was taken down with absolutely no reply. That's kind of messed up, if you ask me. I guess PhD's don't account for a good personalities! =P lol
Long story short - I have had a horrible earache for two weeks now, went to docs, they said it was cotton. Went to better doc, they said it was a growth in my ear. Most painful thing I've ever been through, not to mention the hearing loss in my right ear when it randomly decides to clog itself (not wax). I don't swim, so it's definatly not swimmer's ear.
After rinsing out my ear many times, I finally got some pieces of SOMETHING out a few days ago, but it still hurts a lot so I don't know what to think. Is it healing? Is there more in there? Well aside from all that, I have no idea what that SOMETHING is that came out.
Can somebody please help me identify that SOMETHING(s)?
