At first I had cold for a week and suddenly my left ear got block n I am unable to hear properly. I consult local pharmacist and he suggest me to use dewax if any wax stuck will get released. Its already 2 days now and I used ear bud and I see no dirt and no heal. Proper advice will be appreciated.

Blocked sensation in one ear following head cold for 1 week is likely to be caused by ome rather than due to ear wax. Even if you had ear wax, using ear buds would make the situation worse by pushing ear wax deep inside external auditory canal. Please consult an experienced ent surgeon for proper management.
