Put a few drops of baby oil, mineral oil or glycerin in your ears to soften earwax. You can also use saline (about 1 teaspoon salt with 125ml of boiling water) twice a day for several days.

After the earwax has softened, fill a large bowl with water that is similar to body temperature. Keep your head upright, lift up the top of your ear with one hand, and use the other hand to gently spray water into the ear canal with a rubber syringe, and then turn the water-filled ear down to let the water flow into the bowl. If you have a hole in the eardrum or have undergone ear surgery, do not flush out the earwax with water unless the doctor agrees.

The above action may have to be repeated several times to allow the excess earwax to fall out.

Dry the outer ears with a towel or hair dryer.

If the earwax cannot be washed out with water, you should seek medical attention for treatment by a medical staff. Medical staff will use special equipment to suck out or dig out earwax. If the problem of earwax clogging occurs repeatedly, the doctor recommends using an earwax softener every 4 to 8 weeks to help remove it. In addition, the principle and effectiveness of the method of using ear candles to remove earwax in foreign countries are still controversial, and it is not recommended to use it rashly.#earpick
