try some warm olive oil.... wake sure it's warm.... body temprature
There is a Murine ear wax removal kit available OTC at the pharmacy. Try that. Do not stick q-tips or anything elese in your ear, doing that will impact the wax further. Also, as someone mentioned, you may want to take a decongestant too.
Ear candleing is not good... warm mineral oil is the way to go. If the pressure is really bothering you, try a decongestant.
I use a divers' trick when i'm flying - block your nose and blow. If one ear is already clear, I block that ear as well. <br />
If your ear has gunk, then a doctor can clear it safely. It doesn't hurt.
before bed put mineral oil in your ear... when you wake up... the build up should be gone
