This is Dr. David

you should not be trying to clean out your ear with a bobby pin.

you can risk trauma to your ear canal or ear drum

you should see an ENT doctor or your primary care doctor

they have tools like otoscopes which can look inside of your ears and remove wax safely.

do you have a primary care doctor you can see?
