What Can I Do About Excessive Wax Build Up In My Ear
I believe I have wax build up in my ear as it is starting to become painful and has lasted several days. Will Debrox work to alleviate the pain?
Wax dosnt cause pain: Cerumen (ear wax) impaction can cause decreased hearing, but should not cause pain. Scratching or irritating your ear canal or perforating your ear drum trying to remove ear wax by inserting something into your ear is a common cause of pain. Alternatively ,you may have an outer ear infection with swelling/inflammation of your ear canal. Have clinician look in your ear asap. Take care! ...Read more
Possibility: There is a little left behind that continues to irritate, or the removal was followed by a mechanical irritation that if not progressing towards infection, will heal at the end. The dizziness is because of the proximity with the vestibular apparatus that keeps your balance while walking. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
There is excessive wax formation in my ear, every alternate day I have to clean the liquid wax, is this normal or should I consult an ENT ?
See ENT: When it comes to the ears and earwax the single most important thing is to leave your ears alone. The ears make wax to protect the ear canal skin and when you try to clean it you make your ear canal skin angry and it makes more wax. See an ENT to make sure your skin is okay and doesn't require medication and then stop trying to clean them. ...Read more
How do I get rid of excess wax buildup in my ear. I cannot hear well and I don't want to go have it washed out at the md office like always. Thanks!?
Use OTC ear wax drop: As long as you have no history of eardrum perforation, and no symptoms of current ear infection (ear pain, drainage), you can use OTC ear wax softening drops from your pharmacy. Follow package instructions. Drops will soften the wax. You still may need to flush ear canal with body temperature water. Avoid Q-tips. If not successful, see an ENT MD for exam and treatment. ...Read more
I worked in a sawmill for 6 years. I started having trouble with coughing, stuffy nose, and hard wax build up in my ears. How can I cure this?
Difficult: Worse that you report is cough. Cannot imaging that air is less than replete with wood dust. Breathing that daily cannot be good. I expect that no filter masks worn or advised. It would be interesting to study work injury literature about this matter and long term effects. I am betting that there are significant long-term effects from this chronic exposure. Pharmacies sell otc wax softeners. ...Read more

Hard : Hard to know from this history. A look in the ear may reveal more wax down by the ear drum. Tinnitus, that noise you are hearing in your ear, is often brought on by other problems in the ear. As those problems resolve the tinnitus can go away. If it is persistent, you may need a hearing test and an evaluation by an ent. ...Read more
My 2 year old has wax build up in his ears and dounle ear infection how can I cure this and prevent it from happening again?
My ear is swollwn and sore.My doc says its an inection. How can I remove the wax build up safely?
Debrox : Debrox used as directed is a good otc solution to remove ear wax. I am concerned why you relate the ear wax build up to the infection, unless your doctor looked at it and diagnosed this as being the cause. It sounds very logical but i would have thought that if a doctor looked at it and said there was infection, he would have given you instructions on wax removal and possibly antibiotic solution. ...Read more
