thanks for choosing health care magic.If by any means you have tried to clean your ear with cotton there are chances of having cotton inside.Ask your partner to have look with a torch,it is there in you need to get it removed.If it is in outer ear you can remove your self ,but if it is deep inside please do not try as you may injury your ear drum.

Hi,

This can be due to wax blocking the ear canal or fluid inside the ear drum which gives you the sensation of fullness of the ear and reduced hearing. More over, you have not mentioned in your history whether you have placed cotton inside your ear or earache or itching in the ear. It is better you get examined by an apt ENT specialist and appropriately treated.

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar
