Hello doctor,

I am facing ear pain since yesterday. My right ear alone is paining. When I tried cleaning with a earbud, the bud came out with a black colored deposit. What do I do?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

After considering the facts of your query, it appears like you are suffering from either of these.

  1. Wax in the ear.
  2. Otomycosis (fungal infection of the ear).

Treatment is different in both the above situations.

I suggest taking Paracetamol 500 mg for pain relief.

The above conditions have to be confirmed to start with the treatment.
