Earwax Removal Drops

How to Use Earwax Removal Drops – When to See an Audiologist

If the symptoms persist even if you already used earwax removal drops, consult an audiologist to see if further action needs to take place.

The ears are a delicate part of the body that needs to be taken care of. One common way to take care of them is through earwax removal drops. These are typically sold over-the-counter at local pharmacies.

However, it should be noted that there may come a time when a visit to an audiologist is needed because they are professionals with specialized training in keeping the ears healthy.

Ear Wax Removal Drops

These drops are used to treat earwax buildup. It helps to loosen, soften, and remove the earwax.

Too much earwax can block the ear canal which may reduce hearing. Earwax removal drops release oxygen and produces foam when it comes in contact with the skin. The foaming mechanism helps break up and remove the earwax.

How to use Ear Wax Removal Drops

To use earwax removal drops, follow these steps:

-Examine the package instructions for dosage information. Do not exceed more than prescribed dose.

-Fill a dropper with the solution and place one or two drops into each affected ear canal after cleansing your hands first. Massage it in gently.

If your ear problem continues to persist or worsens after 4 days of usage, seek medical attention.

The Deal with Earwax

Earwax, a natural, protective substance produced by the body, accumulates in the ear canal and becomes impacted over time. Impaction can lead to hearing loss or pain as well as an increased risk of infection.  To avoid risks and complications, it’s important to have an audiologist remove excess ear wax instead of relying on earwax removal drops.

Best Practices for Preventing Earwax Impaction

To help reduce the build-up of earwax, try these steps:  

• Avoid using cotton swabs to clean your ears. Oftentimes, this can push ear wax deeper into the canal.

As tempting as it is, using a Q-tip, paper clip or hairpin to remove earwax can cause injury. It is best to seek the expertise of an audiologist to safely and effectively deal with earwax.

• Avoid touching the inside of your ear to reduce the risk of infection and irritation.

• Don’t use ear candles. Ear candles are not safe to use. You may experience more problems instead of coming up with a solution.

Have your ears checked by an audiologist if you are experiencing hearing loss or pain.

How to know if you have earwax buildup

You may have an earwax buildup if you have:

• Earache

• Itching in the ear canal or pain when swallowing. This is a sign of infection and should be checked by a doctor immediately.

If the symptoms persist even if you already used earwax removal drops, consult an audiologist to see if further action needs to take place.

It may be necessary to remove any buildup of wax that might have accumulated due to improper cleaning habits. The longer it remains there, the more likely it will lead to hearing loss which could cause damage over time.

Getting Your Ears Professionally Cleaned

Audiologists can examine the ear canal and remove any excess or impacted wax buildup safely. They will also carry out a routine ear cleaning to help prevent future build up of earwax that could affect one’s ability to hear properly.

It is highly encouraged to see an audiologist if you are experiencing any kind of ear problems for appropriate diagnosis and treatment options.

Does professional ear wax removal hurt?

It is common to feel some discomfort during the procedure, but this varies between people. Some patients have felt very little pain while others report feeling a sharp tugging sensation when removing impacted earwax from their ear canal or eardrum. It’s important not to touch your ears after getting them professionally cleaned because it can spread bacteria and lead to an infection.
