Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Tingling & numbness in the ear can be caused by earwax blockage, infection, sensory nerve damage, foreign objects or infection due to swimming. It looks like blockade due to wax & infection in your case. You have had wax removed but still have tingling in the affected ear.
Put Otorex ear drops 4-5 drops in the affected ear thrice daily for 5-7 days. The wax that is left will come out by itself. You can visit an ENT specialist get examined & have ear wash done, if required. In the meantime avoid swimming for it may infect your affected ear.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, I ve had numbness and tingling in my right ear for the past 3-4 months. I ve also noticed a warm/hot feelin on the right side of my face and my ear recently. Lastly, and not sure if this is related, but for about a week I was experiencing a lot of pain in my right jaw up until 4-5 days ago.

about 3 or 4 days ago I started feeling a sensation (like a current) in my outer ear. The feeling is not constant but happens about every 30 min. or so. Today I feel sensation is stronger and now I feel it coming from the inner part of the ear and spreads to about the middle of my jaw. In the last hour I felt a little popping sound in my ear. I do not have pain at this time. Thank you.
