Leave otex drops in your ears for 10-15 mins per application to achieve the best results.

Earwax, also known as cerumen, is a natural substance produced by the body to protect the ear canal. However, excessive earwax can cause problems such as earaches, hearing loss, and even infections. Otex is a brand of ear drops that is used to soften and remove earwax.

When using Otex ear drops, it is important to follow the instructions on the packaging. In general, the drops should be used for no longer than 5 days, and no more than 3 drops should be used in each ear per day. It is also important to wait at least 2 hours between doses and to lie with the affected ear facing upwards for 5 minutes after using the drops.

It is also important to note that Otex should not be used if you have a perforated eardrum or if you have had ear surgery. If you have any concerns about using Otex, it is best to consult with a healthcare professional before using the drops.

After using the Otex ear drops, you may notice that the earwax begins to soften and may even start to come out of your ear on its own. This is normal and nothing to worry about. However, if you do not notice any improvement within 5 days or if your symptoms worsen, you should contact your healthcare provider as you may need professional ear wax removal.

Why your ears feel blocked after using Otex

One of the main reasons why your ears may feel blocked after using Otex is that the earwax is not completely removed from your ears. The earwax may have been softened by the Otex solution, but it may still be present in the ear canal. This can lead to a feeling of fullness or pressure in the ears.

Another reason why your ears may feel blocked after using Otex is that the solution may have caused a temporary swelling of the ear canal. This can happen if the solution is left in the ear for too long or if the ear canal is already inflamed or irritated. This swelling can cause a feeling of blockage in the ears and may also lead to temporary hearing loss.

Conclusion

When using these drops, it is important to follow the instructions on the packaging and to consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns. After using Otex, you may notice that the earwax begins to soften and may even start to come out of your ear on its own.
