This answer was rated:

Clogged Ear !Following flu I have now got my left ear clogged since yesterday. I am still recovering from flu symptoms and want to check if I can use these ear drops to unclog my ear. Its very annoying.Please confirm.

Good afternoon, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today

Yes, Otex is for softening wax. If however your ears become painful then do get someone to examine them as sometimes infection can make them feel blocked.
