I've had an overproduction of ear wax most of my adult life. Nothing wrong with going to the doctor. They can do a really good job of treating you very effectively and easily with a lavage (wash). If you can't get to one, I was given a self-help remedy that works well enough. If you mix a 50/50 compound together with rubbing alcohol and vinegar, and put an eardropper full into your ear for several minutes (time depending on the degree of wax), it will heat up in your ear and allow the wax to albiet 'melt'. Then use a syringe with, not quite, hot water to rinse out. You'll see the debris in your sink basin and be amazed. DO NOT use a cotton swab. You'll likely make matter even worse, possibly infection will result.
