    I'm going to assume you haven't seen a medical professional. Isn't your hearing important to you? I'd have my ear checked right away.

    If by 'clean ones every day' you mean you wash used ones, it sounds like you got an infection from either fungus or bacteria that grew on the damp used ones.

    You could also be allergic to the material of which the ear plugs are made of.
