is it normal for debrox to hurt eardrums?

It may it may: Debrox should only be used if you have impacted wax. It should not be used as a preventive medicine. If you using this medication daily, the ear canal skin, and outer layer of the ear drum can become inflamed. Wax is beneficial and should not be routinely removed unless it obstructs your hearing or if you feel pressure and fullness in the ear canal. Wax should be managed by an ENT doctor.
