How to clean the ears out if you have an excessive amount of ear wax?
We talked about how there’s really no way to know if you have wax without seeing a professional.
If you think you have ear wax, the only thing we would ever really recommend is something over-the-counter. There are a number of commercially bought over-the-counter earwax removal kits. However, we don’t typically recommend those for a couple of reasons.
Most over-the-counter ear cleaning kits involve putting liquid in the ear and then some type of liquid, rinse, or a splash through a bulb syringe.
If you’ve ever had any ear problems, any past ear infections, or if you for some reason had even a small rupture in the ear canal, using something like that would be ill-advised.
How To Clean The Ears If You Have Impacted Earwax
If you have a significant amount of debris in the ear and then you add moisture to it, it can lead to a clump or blockage and actually make the issue even worse. So home remedies for ear wax are really not advised.
Again, if you really really felt the need to do something at home, the only thing we’d ever recommend is an over-the-counter kit, but ultimately you’re in better hands coming to a professional for wax removal.
