Tomatoes, I don't think so. I think that's basically a big scab, blood pudding/sausage, I think, but I could definitely be wrong.

I'll be there next week doing a series of seminars for the company office in Weybridge. Weather is irrelevant as I'll not be seeing out of doors the whole time!

Stijn,

lean all the way forward until your head is pointing almost to the ground, then rotate your head slowly left and/or right. ( 90 dergrees or more) You can feel and hear it clearing, when the water runs out.
That does the trick for me.

If you hit your ear (gently) with the palm of your hand, be sure to open your mouth. (occuring pressure differences may hurt otherwise)

tried all sorts of tricks, i think it's not just water, but also some earbutter.
probablty should to get them "blow" out by a doctor, just like they did 10 years ago when i went skydiving... it's the weirdest thing, they put a seringe on your ear, with some solution, i think water and hydrogen peroxide

I missed the morning post.

Yes, Stijn, get a syringe, fill it with semi-warm water (important not cold) and just keep flushing into your ear until the mix of whatever nice stuff you have collected in there comes out.

oooooooooooooooor You can simply drop a heavy object on your big toe on the opposite foot. this will have a 2 pronged effect.
1 You will be in such pain that you won't be bothered by your ear
2 as your foot comes back to life you will then be balanced because of the discomfort on both sides.
Try that and get back to us.

This works for me:

Just mix 1-part Hydrogen Peroxide with 2 parts warm water in a bowl. Get a squeezable bulb type syringe from the drug store and just discharge it forcibly into the ear until the offending plug of wax comes out back into the bowl.

It may take 5 or 6 times.

doc did it for me, and got a checkup while i was at it... BP is perfect, lungs too..

turned out to be a slight ear infection ( although i had no pain) , causing some kind of stuff to solidify and form a film.

culprit wasn't earbutter

He blew out my ears with syringe, jobs a goodn'
