Brief Answer:
Tinnitus.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. This buzzing sound is known as tinnitus.

2. Kindly get your ears re-examined to rule out blockage due to residual ear wax or oil, which is the most common cause for tinnitus. Get her blood pressure and hemoglobin levels checked.

3. Get a PTA (Pure Tone Audiogram) and a Tympanogram (Impedance Audiometry) done.

4. This tinnitus seems to be related to her ear cleaning and the oil that she has put in the ear. There may be some mild inflammation that will settle down and the tinnitus will decrease.

5. Kindly upload these test results for further treatment advice.

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.

Regards.
