    So I woke up with this today and it still hasn't stopped. I'm getting really worried now. I haven't has a cold or anything.
    I did have a practical yesterday where we were dealing with e coli and t4 phages but I didn't even touch my ear???
    Help!

    I've had this before many times and it's just a build up of wax, rather than a cold.

    so do I need to go to the doctor? And when will it stop? Thanks

    could be earwax, maybe a hot(ish) bath and letting your ear fill with water for a few minutes will fix it... if not there's over the counter earwax remedies in pharmacists shops.

    You can just go to the chemist and get some ear drops. The ear drops soften the wax which you can remove.

    Difficult to say when it'll stop. I've had it at least 3 times. Each time, it was different.
