My hearing problem

I am 14 years old. My problem is that I can’t hear properly with my right ear. Kindly tell me what to do.

A very common cause of poor hearing in one ear is the presence of dried wax in that ear. In view of this, it will be a good idea for a doctor to take a look at your right ear to confirm if wax is lodged there. The wax can then be dissolved with some antiwax drops or by a wash out or manual removal if very big.
