My left ear is completely stopped up with wax. I tried to wash it out by turning my ear towards the shower head and it made it worse. Actually that's what got it fully stopped up, whereas before it was mild. Things are severely muted in my left ear. Do I just need to wait for it to go away on its own or is there something safe and relatively natural I can do for it? My right ear also has the same problem right now, just not as bad. This had happened before, usually a result of taking a bath and getting my head completely under water, but never this bad.
Anyone know why this even happens in the first place?
