Used hydrogen peroxide to clean ears. Worked well in one ear. Is there any wax build up or ear infection as I hear less?

I recently used Hydrogen peroxide to clean my ears. It worked fantastic in one ear (got the bubbling and fizzing and it worked greate) but in my other ear i got nothing. No fizzing or bubbling at all. Why is this? what can or should I do next about it. There is definetly wax or build up or something in this ear i hear less or ear infection or something for a long time now.

ENT Specialist 's  Response

It is better that you dont clean the ear by your self at home. There are good chances that the ear will get infected and lead to injuries. Using hydrogen peroxide is not advisable at home. There is a likely chance that your other ear is full of wax and you didnt get any bubbles in that ear. If there is a block or pain I would advise to visit the nearest ENT specialist. If there isnt any trouble with it then leave them alone.

I hope you found my response to be helpful and informative. If you have any additional concerns I would be happy to address them.
