I have used ear wax drops but your ear should not be itchy and numb. Please stop using the drops right away.
If you are still having problems with your ear, you may need to see an Ear, Nose and Throat (Otolaryngologist) doctor. Your family doctor or your health care plan can recommend a specialist for you.
Ear wax is a natural function of the body to clean and lubricate the ear canal and also prevent infection. It is believed that fear and stress increase production of ear wax. When the wax blocks the ear canal, you cannot hear well.
I have noticed that the amount of fat I eat seems to affect the amount of ear wax I have. The more fat (especially fatty beef) I eat, the more ear wax I get. Ear wax is 30 to 50 % fat in composition according to Wikipedia.
