How to treat excessive hard ear wax formation?

a few weeks ago my doctor washed out my ear because there was too mug earwax and she hurt it really bad so she out drops to let the pain go away. she prescribed me 2 medications one to take 5 days a month so my earwax softens and one to "loosen my ear canal so it runs smooth" but I haven't gotten either yet and I can hear but my ear still crackles when I swallow and it feels weird like I can't hear the right way I can't explain!!

Hi,
From history it seems that you might be having impacted wax giving rise this problem.
Put some wax dissolving ear drops for few days to make wax loose.
Afterwards consult your doctor and get wax removed.
Do not try to remove wax your self with cotton buds or q-tip.
Ok and take care.
