What is debrox?

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. ...Read more

Is it safe to use debrox every night?

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. ...Read more

Use it longer: Although i never recommend debrox, I do not think that using it once is going to give you much help. First, are you sure you have much wax in your ear canal that requires you to use anything? If you have a hearing loss and think that wax is blocking your ear, i certainly would have this confirmed by an ENT doctor who not only can confirm wax but can safely remove this blockage. ...Read more

Carbamide Peroxide: Debrox is an otc that can dissolve ear wax. It won't help otitis media as it only goes to the outer ear. In fact, if it gets in the middle ear it will cause significant pain. On a side note, hydrogen peroxide works as well as debrox but is much cheaper. ...Read more

Ear wax stuck in ear? I took a shower last night and i still have some sort of water/wax buildup impairing my hearing in my left ear. I tried dropping rubbing alcohol in it and using an expired tube of debrox, but no luck, yet also no physical pain.

As : As long as you have no history of eardrum perforation, the simplest thing to do is buy a baby bulb syringe, fill it with luke warm water, and self-irrigate the ear in a dependent position. This usually works after the wax has been softened by a cerumenolytic medication (debrox). If this doesn't work have your pcp or ENT physician take a look. ...Read more
