Never use Q-tips: As you probably know, Q-tips are not supposed to be used in the ear canal for the very reason you noted. You can accidentally cause a canal abrasion which bleeds. Now, you should go to an otolaryngologist to carefully examine and clean the ear. There are many OTC remedies to dissolve ear wax safely rather than using Q-tips. Please look into that area in the future. ...Read more

What can I do if my son is complaining his ear is clogged. Best way to unclog his ear?

Ear clogged: If it is from eustachian tube dysfunction, just having him perform a valsalva maneuver could do the trick. This is to pinch the nose and blow such that the ear pops. If there is fluid in the middle ear, this works pretty well, too, unless the fluid is really thick. If thick fluid or infection, may need antibiotics. May eventually need a tube in the ear, so depends on underlying cause/severity. ...Read more

My ear feels clogged and has a low ringing or humming noise what should do? Just started this morning

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your symptoms. However, your eustacian tube (tube that goes from the inside of the ear and empties into the throat) may be closed off. That can create the sense of pressure and may be causing the ringing (tinnitus). Hydrate well. Consider use of an oral decongestant. You might also consider using a product like afrin (oxymetazoline) which is sprayed in the nose. Make sure that you don't use it more often that twice a day for a max of 3 to 5 days. Your symptoms may be the result of congestion. ...Read more
