Thanks for posting your query.
Do you have history of recurrent water entry in your affected ear?
Kindly don't put anything inside your ear as it may be harmful.
Ear buds are the source of injury
. At times bleeding may occur from ear. So kindly don't insert anything blindly.
You may have dryness of skin and may have fungal infection
You should again consult with your treating ENT surgeon and should go for ear drops containing clotrimazole
You can also use soluwax ear drops containing lignocaine.
