Thank you

Sorry to hear about this

This is most likely an impacted wax

You can use Glycerine ear drops

That will help in softening the wax

You need to have an ear examination as the impacted wax may need a removal as well

Take an anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen for pain relief as well

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. I will be glad to help you always.
