, I am a 19 year old pearl. I’d like to ask. So at that time I was swimming and then my ears were filled with water and I couldn’t hear the left side accompanied by noisy sounds which were quite disturbing. Then on the last 8th I went to the puskesmas and the doctor said that it was a lot of earwax, hard and accumulated like that. Then I was given phenol glycerol ear drops. But it’s been 9 days of use and the change hasn’t been felt. Previously the doctor said that later the feces would runny and come out on their own. My question is, should I consult the doctor again? Or wait a few more days to see the reaction of this phenol glycerol? Thank you in advance

Hi pearlwrs. Thank you for your question.


Earwax that hardens in medical language is called deep cerumen. Dirt actually functions to keep the ear from entering other dirty items, water, or germs. And naturally earwax can be "cleaned" by the body itself through the movement of the jaw when talking and chewing. If you win, you have seen a doctor and they say that your earwax is hard. You will be given ear drops to soften the wax, so don't hesitate to check back with your doctor or ENT specialist to find out how your ears are currently. In some conditions, after instilling the ear medication, cleaning of dirt with suction or ear irrigation will be carried out. Cleaning the ears of someone who has deep cerumen cannot be done alone, but must be assisted by a doctor because if you pick at the ears, you run the risk of injuring the eardrum which can lead to deafness.
