Hello Putry,


Complaints of clogged or clogged ears after cleaning the ears with a cotton bud can be caused by a buildup of earwax. Earwax comes in many forms. For people who have earwax which tends to be tough, when cleaned with a cotton swab, sometimes the dirt gets deeper because it is pushed by the tip of the cotton bud.


The earwax that gets deeper is trapped in the ear canal and causes ear complaints such as blockage and hearing loss. Treatment for this condition is by extracting wax using special tools and techniques.


But apart from ear wax obstruction, ear congestion can also be caused by other things such as:

The ear gets into the water
While on a plane or diving
Nasal congestion
Sinusitis
Otitis media
Eardrum disorders

You should check with an ENT doctor so that further tests can be done to determine the cause of your ear congestion. The doctor will look at your ear canal, nostril, and also your throat to determine the direction of the cause. Furthermore, if the cause is known, the doctor can provide maximum further treatment. If there is a blockage due to earwax, the doctor will clean the earwax. If needed, the doctor can provide additional medicine for you.


In the meantime you should do the following tips:

Take care not to get water in the ear
Avoid swimming, diving, and delay traveling by plane when necessary
Avoid picking your ears too deep
Better control to the ENT doctor every 6 months to clean wax
Avoid the habit of blowing your nose too hard
Avoid exposure to loud and loud noises, yawning and swallowing
Try exhaling with your nose and mouth closed, but not too hard
