Brief Answer:
Ear wax should ideally be cleaned by a specialist.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query.

1. Ideally, you should get your ears examined and cleaned by an ENT Specialist

2. Ear wax is normally present only in the outer two thirds of the externalear canal.

3. Using oils or warm water syringing can also push the ear wax inside towards the ear drum, blocking the ear.

4. There is a homeopathic ear oil called Mullein ear oil which is mild and soothing. Try this oil to prevent the ear blocking.

5. The ringing sound is known as tinnitus and is common with ear wax build up and hearing loss. Hearing tests can be done if the ringing persists after getting the ear cleaned.

I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any more questions I will be available to answer them.
