Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The conditions experienced by your father can mean various things, including:
Ear fungus infection or otomycosis
Middle ear infection or otitis media
Outer ear infection or otitis externa
The entry of foreign objects, can be in the form of goods or animals
And it could also be other causes depending on the results of the examination. Our advice, you should check your father at the ENT doctor, because at least it needs to be seen the contents of the ear canal using a special tool to know what is in it, whether there are signs of swelling, redness, dirt, small animals, whether the eardrum is still intact, and others etc. to be able to establish a diagnosis. The handling that will be received later depends on the results of the inspection. If your father for one reason or another is difficult to see a ENT doctor, at least consult a general practitioner first.
Meanwhile, keep the ears clean and dry, and don't add anything, be it drops, herbal remedies, cotton buds, or even fingers. New drugs may be given if it is recommended by a doctor. But besides that, don't add it because it can make things worse. To clean the ears, just press the clean cloth on the ear. So, hopefully answering your question.
