Sorry to hear about your problem

Ear wax is a common problem

There are few things which can be tried at home before you see your doctor for a physical examination and then advising proper treatment

Simple use of sodium bicarbonate and glycerin ear drops in the ear three to four times a day help in relieving the hardness of the wax.

Other remedy can be use of over the counter carbamide peroxide ear drops as it aid in removal of wax by softening it

Other procedure if the wax is still not removed by these measures are best done in an ENT surgeon office so along with using these medicines do schedule an appointment with your doctor.
