You should visit an ENT specialist for ear blockage.

2. Can I use cotton earbuds to remove earwax on a regular basis?

Excess earwax usually falls off on its own and does not require manual removal with earbuds. In fact, earbuds may push the wax deeper down the external ear canal, making it more difficult to fall out naturally.

My ear always been block with hardened ear wax. So my doctor ask me to use baby oil to softened it after several days. I can feel a bit watery in my ear, check it with cotton swap and it fills with mainly yellowish ear wax and a bit of blood. What could be the problem?
