Had blocked ears through excessive ear wax. Loss of hearing, ear infection causing smell in left ear. Suggest?

Hi I have had blocked ears through excessive ear wax in the past (and always got them syringed by the nurse no problem) and now recently my left ear has become blocked again but along with it is an awful smell that can only be compared to faeces. There is no pain, just minor hearing loss due to blockage, and the smell. It seems like an ear infection , any help appreciated.
