Symptoms of a wax plug in your ear
Earwax protects your ears from dirt, dust, fungal infections, viruses, and bacteria, but the excess earwax results in clogged ears. If you are experiencing noise in the ear canal, loss of hearing, pressure in your ears, and earache, then you are suffering from clogged ears.
Make sure you always dry the ear after you are done cleaning it. You can use a hairdryer for that.
