    Muffled Hearing After Suctioning Outer Ear

    My ear was itchy and i created a suction like thing with my finger to try and alleviate it but i think the suction was too strong and now my hearing is muffled and middle ear feels like pressure. Did the suction pull the eardrum outward too much? I don't know what i should do. How can i fix the eardrum if that is the problem. Please help.

    Re: Muffled Hearing After Suctioning Outer Ear

    You may have moved a plug of earwax into a smaller part of the ear canal, which now is stuck and blocking your hearing. It would be best to have your ear looked at, but in lieu of that you could use a bulb syringe to try to flush out any wax. If it is hard wax you might need ear wax softening drops instilled first, OTC at all drugstores. Warm the drops and use warm water to flush after drops have been in at least 1/2 hr. If doing this is painful, stop and see a Dr.
