My ear was plugged for 8 days. On the 4th day I went to urgent care. The nurse practitioner said I had a sinus infection (although my sinuses were not blocked or bothering me at all), and gave me antibiotics. After four days of antibiotics it still didn't clear. I put hydrogen peroxide in my ear, and flushed with a bulb syringe and warm water. Three or four long, 1 & 1/2" to 2" strips of a thin, clear, papery, tissue-like substance, slightly orangish in color, with fine skin-like lines on them, and one tiny pink rice shaped substance with what looked like a blood vessel in it came out. What are these? NOTE: I cannot see an ENT for almost 2 months - all are booked up in my area. I was hoping for a reply, as I will worry until I get seen by the Dr. Thank you58, Female, HealthyI do not use Q-tips.
