Question:
After svimmingpool I practically lost hearing on right ear. Normally such 'water plug' should go away soon after, but now 3 weeks have passed. What kind of remedy can I try ?
JN
Answer:
Thank you for your inquiry The usual cause for this (especially if you wiggled your finger around a lot trying to clear it) is that a build up of cerumen (= wax) has lodged against the drum and is deadening the response of the drum to sound waves. See your GP, he/she will take a look in your ear with an auriscope, and can syringe the wax out on the spot. Hope this helps
