Go to an ear specialist, if you want to fix it and find a permanent solution.
Awhile back I had one ear totally clogged with wax and I couldn't get it out. Went to a GP, his nurse put in a few drops of whatever, came back 15 minutes later and blasted the **** out of my ear with some kind of Russian-made metal turkey-baster loaded with hydrogen-peroxide and water mix. It actually hurt but it worked. The amount of wax in the bowl afterwards was impressive.
Over the counter hydrogen peroxide is usually a 3% solution. My pharmacist sold me some 6% but advised to dilute it. I would check the strength before putting neat peroxide in your ear in case it corroded straight through to the other side.

No candles in my ears and chiropractors can make produce wonderful temporary results in some things...nothing they do removes ear wax though. See the doc...
50 % White distilled vinegar
50 % distilled water
Put it in a shot glass and use an eye dropper or if you don't have an eye dropper cut a plastic straw. About 5 inches long.
Warm the solution by setting the shot glass in a pan of hot water or put the shot glass in the microwave 5 Seconds at a time until it's good and warm.
Lie down on your side and fill your ear with the solution and let it do its thing for about seven or eight minutes.
Then turn your head and let it drain out onto a paper towel or whatever.
Do that three or four times and each ear and then the over-the-counter kit should work.
Also works great to stop an earache dead in its tracks if you do it as soon as you feel the earache coming on.
The mineral oil is a good suggestion as well but messier.
ear candles were mentioned: about ten or so years ago, I had this and the ear candles worked great. but he next time, they did nothing at all. we tried them the other day and nothing happened.
I've been stopped up for about 3 weeks now. I was sick with a cold for days and days, and this is what it left behind.
I know the tdpri usually promotes a “pics or it didn’t happen” policy, but in this case that policy is waived... in fact we insist on that.
I get my ears syringed regularly at my Hearing Clinic. We have
quite a few hearing aid companies in NZ who have this service
and for me it is free.
IMHO I wouldn't advise putting anything in your ears, go to
a professional and get them cleaned out properly, it's only
probably $30 bucks twice a year.
I just lost my appetite
As a kid I had to have some kind of hot stuff poured in my ears to get the wax out.
Didn't like that at all.
They tell kids not to cut toward yourself and not to put stuff in your ears, plus a bunch of other stuff not to do, but dammit I wasn't about to leave stuff in there either so I've been cleaning them with Q tips ever since, and no wax builds up.
Another thing I did as an older kid was help out in a furniture shop to learn stuff, and not complain when running the huge old planer, which felt like somebody was hammering nails into my ears. The guys all had their own hearing protection it seems.
Boys weren't supposed to complain that stuff hurt, so I didn't, but it literally blew my ear drums, so they ended up with holes in them.
Water or hot oil will leak through the holes and take days to come back out.
So I keeps 'em clean!
You know that tool that always gets posted? Don't use that. Go to the DOCTOR.
BTW - Earworms don't eat wax only vinyl.
I had the problem as a kid and then all of the years of water polo, swimming, swimming competition and triathlons ... it was not an issue whatsoever. Then, it came back for the last 20 years. Ear candles work the best, but if you soak with hydrogen peroxide a couple times before going to the doctor, a good nurse can do it in 10 seconds. Nowadays that seems less expensive than the ear candles.
You could start swimming in a masters program. I would, but none within 90 miles of here.
See here's the problem, you need to stick in deeper,, I know, I know, that's what she said last night!
If warm mineral oil doesn’t help get to an EMT. They have the ability & tools to remove it properly
Years ago we thought my little brother was going deaf. It turned out he had massive wax impactions in both years. It took two visits to the EMT to clear it up completely. The amount of wax that came out of his ears was amazing. Suddenly he could hear again and stopped talking in an almost whisper because the “voice” in his head was gone.
I had a moderate wax issue and use warm Debrox 2-3 times s year. I have used warm mineral oil on the occasion when the Debrox doesn’t cut it
If you dewax your ears would they become microphonic?
