Swimmer's ear or wax: Swimmer's ear is inflammation, irritation, or infection of the outer ear and ear canal. It can be treated with drops; it is reasonable to try vinegar drops first before obtaining a prescription drop. If the ear is completely blocked, however, it could be from impacted wax.

While cleaning my ear the qtip implailed my ear drum. My ear bleed 4 two days and it feels like my ear is plugged. Can't hear, migraine what do I do?
See an ENT DOC: Cleaning the inside of ear canal with a q-tip is a definite no no.
