Hello, yesterday I decided to clean my ears and poured

Hello, yesterday I decided to clean my ears and poured a little peroxide in both ears. My right ear cleaned fine, however when i put it in my left ear its caused some issues. When I put the first few drops in I felt it stop, then sink lower. I felt a pulsing in my ear, like it had seeped into my lower eardrum canal. Currently it feels as if my ear is full of water and has caused some hearing loss, but has enhanced other hearing like making the sound of chewing much louder.

After a visit to the ENT yesterday for wax removal, my ear began to bleed and there was a lot of pain in the left ear but not the right, also I woke to blood in my ear. I have had left ear pain for three month before I finally decided to see an ENT. Just wondering if this is normal after a ear cleaning?

Hello, I got a piercing 4 days ago on the left side of my ear on my tragus and it immediately got infected and was pretty severe. I was in excruciating pain and couldn t sleep at night and the swelling was awful. I decided to go to an urgent care yesterday and have a doctor take it out. I had to be numbed three times and as soon as they touched the earring blood and infection poured out. Now I m worried that I may have tetanus. My whole left side of my face swelled and was painful to the touch. I was given an antibiotic and ointment for the wound and infection. But I noticed my jaw has been locking up when I open it too much and is very stiff on the left side i cannot open it all the way or chew food, but this only happened after my piercing was removed. Do you think it s just sore or should I be worried Bout tetanus? If so what should I do I have not been vaccinated. Do you think the dr and urgent care would of detected tetanus if I were to have it ? Thank you for your time.

Hello, Backstory: I regularly clean my ears monthly, with a metal piece of cleaning equipment, it looks like a tiny spoon so it can be inserted into the ear to literally scoop up dirt. There s one time I cleaned it and heard a piece of ear wax drop further into my ear drum. From then my ear started to clog slowly over a period of weeks, and there were times I had what felt like clogged ears so I would drop some water in, let what I believed is hardened ear wax, soak and then drain the water from my left ear. The water would fill my ear for about 30 seconds before I let the water out. Just yesterday I awoke and realised here s a small lump behind my left ear. It s quite small and not visible or protruding out of my skin. But if I press on it I can feel a small ball. When pressed, I can feel some pressure on it but no pain. Also I had headaches on and off on the left side of my head too, and I m wondering if they re related? Should I visit a doctor? I m sure it s not swimmers ear as there s no pain. Thank you
