Can feel ear wax in ear. Advice?

Hello! I have some ear wax in my ear and I have seen my local GP, who told me that I have no ear wax. I can feel some wax in my ear because I am feeling this weight in my ear. I am Asian, so I do have dry ear wax. It is strange that my doctor told me that there is no ear wax in my ear canal but I am sure it is on the skin. Please advice.

Generally, a person cannot feel ear wax in his or her ears unless it completely stops up the ear. There are many other reasons that your ear might feel like it has wax. You should be examined by an Ear Nose & Throat specialist who can look into your ear with microscope.
