Hello Izzatul,

Feelings of "open" and "closed" in the ear affected by several things. Please note that there is a connecting channel between the middle ear and the throat area called the Eustachian tube. The ears feel closed can be caused by:

Sinus blockage
Suffers from a cold / flu
Earwax buildup
Inserted water into the ear canal
Being on a plateau, or experiencing changes in altitude quite quickly

This feeling of open and closed can occur repeatedly even though the earwax has been cleaned because there are still a number of other causes that can cause a sensation of feeling closed to the ear involving the eustachian tube. There are several ways to reduce the feeling of being closed in the ear, including:

Chew gum
Blowing air from the nose by covering the mouth and nose (valsalava maneuver)
Use a special plug when flying on a plane
Treating colds / colds
