Update... I went to ENT and it is a fungus infection. plus the clogged feeling is due to an infection behind the eardrum. My eardrum had healed so now drops can be put into my ear. The grey and black hunk of junk as I call it was fungus coming out. I am taking oral antibiotics (not amoxicillin) and using a fungal ear rinse now alternating with a steroid drop into the ear... Hipster if you are still having problems, go to ENT doctor or the fungus will keep coming back...View Thread
I hit right click on link and the picture came through fine. I am currently going through the same thing and after my ruptured eardrum started draining, the same stuff came out of mine. It was grey and black. (more grey) Mine was a bit bigger than yours. I kinda think it is skin and gunk from inside ear. When I felt it and pulled it out it actually cleared out that clogged feeling for about 5 minutes then it clogged back up and has been clogged ever since. Last night a small piece of the same stuff fell out again. I too am on amoxicillin (500mg 4x day) and although I do not believe I have an infection, it hasn't really gotten any better or worse. My ear itches like crazy! It was itching before this happened. My other ear now is feeling like it is not fully open. I do not know what that stuff is for sure and would really like to know myself. I do know that this is the most irritating thing to go through and I want it healed and gone. It is driving me nuts!View Thread
