    So my ears are quite problematic, they get blocked a lot with thick sticky earwax although i try to clean them. My ear drums have burst before so i can't have otex or anything like that and they get infected quite a lot. However recently they have started blocking again and my left ear is really quite painful (to the extent i can't use earphones etc). I have tried going to the doctors 3 times about it but all they say is use this olive oil stuff which doenst work

    Tell the doctors it doesn't work. You might need your ears syringed if nothing else is working/ an option. You might have an infection right now which is causing the added pain. In any case go see your doctor and tell them if something hasn't worked before. It might be worth askig for a referal to an ENT (ear, nose, throat doctor) so they can try to work out why your ears are so bad and help sort it. Seems like your doctor doesn't know whats wrong.
