How effective is the ear care debrox drops?

How effective is the ear care debrox drops?

Debrox Otic Solution: Debrox otic solution is effective in dislodging cerumen (wax) from ear canals. However you need to be patient when using debrox and allow that to penetrate deep into the ear canals before you get up and do house chores.Also with some tough ear wax it may take a couple of weeks to work. Still you may have to see your doctor to use the water-pick in your ears. ...Read more

What is the difference between using debrox ear drops and using just baby oil?

What is the difference between using debrox ear drops and using just baby oil?

Minimal: Debrox drops have a bubbling effect that may help remove wax but both will soften ear wax and make it easier to remove. Hydrogen peroxide is probably just as effective as debrox for the bubbling, but neither should be used in an ear that might have a perforation. ...Read more

R/O CERUMEN IMPACTION: Cerumen production is normal and can increase during particular seasons. You need to be examined and reevaluated most doctors have the tools to remove cerumen. Over the counter I prefer the Murine Ear wash system. If symptoms persist or worsen see prompt medical evaluation. ...Read more

Cannot say: without an exam, I can only give general information, and.. several other ear wax remedy's out there. AND, often the debrox has to be done in more than one cycle. be sure and rinse it out many times each cycle. Other possiblities such as ear infection would benefit from an exam. ...Read more

I used debrox and let it sit for 15 minutes and attempted to flush my ear with water, but nothing came out. Should i repeat the process

I used debrox and let it sit for 15 minutes and attempted to flush my ear with water, but nothing came out. Should i repeat the process

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

My ears feel clogged as if i'm going through the mountains and my ears are about to pop. I've used debrox but nothing. What else can I do?

My ears feel clogged as if i'm going through the mountains and my ears are about to pop. I've used debrox but nothing. What else can I do?

ETD: It sounds like you are having trouble equalizing the pressure in your middle ear. This often creates a fullness, like you want to pop or clear your ears. It is called eustachian tube dysfunction (etd). Decongestant either sprayed into the nose or taken orally can alleviate this problem. Sometimes your doctor needs to examine this and treat with other rx if no success with otc rx. ...Read more

I bought some debrox last night to help clear out my ear. Will the bulb give enough pressure, or should I use something else (like some say to do)?

I bought some debrox last night to help clear out my ear. Will the bulb give enough pressure, or should I use something else (like some say to do)?

The bulb should do: Deanna- sometimes you need a few days of the debrox to soften the wax and then if you lean over the sink and push the tepid water in over and over as it flushes in and out you should see some wax coming out. close the water drain so you can see if you are getting results. You can also add 1/2 hydrogen peroxide to the water you are putting in to help aid the softening action. good luck ...Read more

My ear has been clogged for a week and I have tried debrox wont work don't have a family dr. I can't hear it all.. What can I do?

Ear Wax: Hi!, ear wax is normal and sometimes can block the ear canal and cause your ear to feel plugged. Over the counter preparations can help, gentle warm water flushing in the shower will sometimes dislodge the impaction, and most urgent care clinics can flush out the ear canal and remove the blockage. If not, see an ear/ nose & throat doctor soon. Good luck! ...Read more

Settles down: Expired medications rarely cause any problems. You may be experiencing something else. Have your doctor take a look if it persists. Straight water irrigation of the ear not a good idea. ...Read more
