Ear clogging as per your query have symptoms of pain and clogging in the ears which is due to ear infection, wax buildup, Eustachian tube dysfunction and foreign body penetration in ear. I would suggest you to visit Otolaryngologist/ ENT specialist once and get it evaluated and start treatment after proper examination. Try to avoid pricking it with any sharp object. You should avoid sleeping on this side. Apply warm compresses on ear and avoid excessive bending forward. You should take antibiotic Ciprofloxacin along with Ibuprofen. You should put Otogesic ear drops 2-3 times a day. Get all the lab tests done and complete examination with otoscope. You should take proper rest.

Best Wishes,
