Please consult an Ent specialist as they are the best doctor to help you in your case...I know that we have a habit of putting ear buds but it's a fact that it causes more harm than help..so please avoid in future...Ent specialist will help in clearing the wax by suctioning or syringing depending on the type of wax..thank you
