Blocked ear

Dear Doc. Yesterday i used an earbud, ently, in my right ear. I very seldom use one as i know they are bad. Since then my ear has been blocked - feels like wax. are there any eardrops you can suggest or something else can i use? Thank you!

Dear Rose
Ear buds should never be used in ears, as they tend to push the wax deeper into the canal. They can also cause extensive damage to the canal and tympanic membrane. You need to see an ENT, they will have to remove the wax and assess for possible damage.
