    Ok so this is freaking me out. Yesterday I was cleaning out my ear with a cotton bud and i put it in too much accidently. I'm thinking that I pushed some ear wax into the ear canal. And then this morning I touched my ear and I felt something squeeky and then my ear got more clogged up so now it's extremely muffled.

    The whole day I've been half deaf and i'm getting so upset I've tried everything like olive oil, putting my ear over steam and inhaling tea tree oil. The thing is though, when I blow my nose I can still hear my left ear pop so I don't think i've damaged it. I think it's more of a surface thing. And btw there's no blood or pain, just a high pitch sound. I asked my parents to take me to the doctors and they said wait a bit.

    I don't know what to do guys. D: it's so hard to forget about it because it's always there. Thanks for any tips

    You might be able to get it checked by someone at the chemist?
