      Hi Evans Have you had this checked out by your doctor recently? If not then it is a good idea just in case anything else has developed since the injury. In the meantime you could try the herb Plantago as this is traditionally used for blocked/inflamed ears, this can take a little while to work so you do need to be patient with it. Unfortunately, alcohol and any kind of smoking could make your symptoms worse so best avoided if possible!

Did you know?

Earwax can indicate how often you are being exposed to loud noises. The substance is your body’s natural way of protecting your ears, so the more you are exposed to loud noises, the more earwax you may start to produce.
