Clogged ears .. infection or no?

so I've been dating my boyfriend for about 3months and for the past month he's been talking about how his ears will get randomly clogged up and he can barely hear outta them. but than it'll randomly go away. he says they don't really hurt and he's not sick so I'm guessing its not an ear infection? could it be like wax build up or something?

I say have him go to the doctors and have them clean out his ears because it is possible his ears are clogged up from maybe not cleaning them enough or if he swims a lot. If going to see a doctors is not an option and is maybe too expensive, have him try putting hydrogen peroxide into his ears and tilting his head for about 30 minutes then washing his ears out with water. If this does not help, try getting a wax remover from any drug store. If it is painful and his ears bleed, then it is possible that he has an ear infection, but it is most likely he just has wax build up in his ears.

Sounds like a wax build up to me. An ear infection would bring with it a fever and pain. Go to the Pharmacy near you and get a decent Ear-Wax cleaner and he'll be fine.

Yes wax probably build up and he can't hear or it could be a infection about 50% but he should not be getting a infection so he probably needs his ear clean if u start to see wight stuff it means that it need to be clean

cut a straw in half then tape it to a vacuum cleaner and let the straw go in your ear canal. if you see brown stuff go up the straw you are fine
