Wax in the ears is normal thing.when the ear canal is narrower,collection of excess wax in ear canal causes pain and hearing loss.     When it is just filing in the ear simply pouring of oil in frequent intervals for at least 7- 10 days it will expelled from ear canal.if it is not so manual removal by otologist is required. Many times ear buds causes canal trauma leading to fungal infection
