I have a long history of ear infections, so anytime I have any pain or drainage, I always see a doctor about a possible ear infection. Back in 2010, I was put on antibiotics for an ear infection, and the drainage never went away. For the last 3 years, i've had excessive fluid/wax drainage that prevents me from wearing my hearing aid, because the fluid/wax clogs it up. I clean my ears 4-5 times daily and it still isn't enough. I've seen the doctor multiple times, including once about 2 weeks ago, and they insist there is nothing wrong with my ear, and won't give me any answers. It is getting very aggrivating and I am at a loss of what to do about it.View Thread
