Brief Answer:
You have pushed ear wax much deeper.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX ,
Thanks for the query.
As per your clinical history it appears that you have pushed ear wax much deeper during removal with ear bud & cause trauma to the ear canal .

If I were your treating doctor, I would advice you soliwax ear drop 4 drops five times a day for 5 day to soften ear wax then removal under microscope from ENT specialist in your area . Ear will remain block till then .

Keep ear dry , don’t allow water go inside while bath. Stop using ear bud it will push ear wax much deeper & removal became difficult .

Hope this information helpful to you .If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Thanks.
