Hi...welcome to health care magic

I have gone through your query regarding your ear pain for last two days as you have said this might be because of wax.

You haven’t mentioned about any other associated problems like impairment of hearing, itching & etc which might be helpful for making the right diagnosis.

But here I believe your suspicion for wax in ear may give rise to pain so you may use any wax softener drops along with broad spectrum antibiotics and analgesics.

It will be better to mention if you have any other associated problems or any history of ear cleaning prior to your ear aches etc.

With regards.

Hi Sir,

After the bath I'm seeing the pain on the right ear when I tried cleaning my right ear
using ear buds. I also get pain on the right ears when taking food.

Welcome again for re consulting.

After considering your symptoms for earache which developed after taking bath and as you started cleaning your ear by ear bud.This put myself in suspicion that your ear pain which you also have during taking food might be due to-

(1) Otomycosis- Means fungal infection in ear.

(2) Wax with otitis externa.

You are having one of the above disease these can be differentiated only by clinical examination by ENT doctor, this way after confirmation of diagnosis one can treat, secondarily in both above conditions before inst ling ear drop ear cleaning is must, which can be done safely by ENT doctors only. Keeping these things in mind you should contact your ENT doctor for proper management.

With Regards.
