A 53-year-old member asked:

What is debrox?

Ear wax remover: Debrox is the brand name for carbamoyl peroxide, which is an ear drop for softening up ear wax, and may dissolve some of the wax. If a person has his ear canals plugged up with firm ear wax, he can use a few drops, once a day, for 2-3 days prior to his appointment with his doctor. His primary care doctor will then have a much easier time flushing the wax out with water.

Is it safe to use debrox every night?

No: If you are doing this to prevent or control wax build up in the external ear canals, debrox will eventually produce an irritation and even inflammation of the skin of the ear canal. Wax is important to have and it is protective against bacteria and fungus. The ears should be examined periodically and only if you have a lot of wax, let an ENT doc examine and clean it.

A female asked:

Can I use a debrox from 2016?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Randy Baker
Holistic Medicine 40 years experience
Yes: Most medications are good for quite awhile (even several years) after the "expiration date." Debrox from 2016 is probably just as good now as it was in 2016. The very worse thing is that it might not work quite as well as if it was fresher but it would not be harmful in any way...
