Hard earwax and ear clogging can cause the sufferer to experience decreased hearing function due to impaired sound conduction. Not only that, this earwax can also trigger inflammation in the ear which makes the ear itchy, painful, swollen, and also frequent ringing. This condition certainly needs to be treated properly so as not to cause more serious complications.
Handling of hard and clogged earwax is usually done by direct extraction by a doctor or ENT specialist using special drugs and tools. After extraction, the doctor can give several drugs, including H2O2 which works to soften earwax while reducing inflammation, and also antibiotics (for example Akilen) to prevent and treat ear infections.
The use of H2O2 as long as it is carried out according to the doctor's instructions generally does not cause dangerous side effects. The appearance of pain in the ear as you experience may not be directly caused by the H2O2 you are using. This pain is likely due to residual inflammation that occurred in your ear before. It could also, this pain indicates that your ear condition has not fully healed.
In mild conditions, along with proper treatment as recommended by the doctor, the pain should decrease and then disappear after the drug runs out. You should not stop using the drug first without consulting the doctor who prescribed it. You have to check your complaint again with the ENT specialist who treated you before so that you can find out the best treatment to do. In the meantime, keep using the medicine as recommended by the doctor. If the pain in the ear is very severe, you can first take parecatamol to relieve it.
Hope it helps ..
