my ears have been congested lately. doctor's strongly advise that you don't use cotton swabs because it pushes the wax deeper or could cause damage to the ear drum. I've been to the clinic last year to get my ears flushed and now the problem is back. I wake up with an ear clogged I guess from the pressure of sleeping on my sides. the ear is all stuffy and I can't hear good. I had my hopes up with the wax vac but the reviews on you tube says its only good for removing water out your ear. any advice?
