Have you or someone you know ever suffered from a buildup of ear wax (cerumen)?
Consider Ear Oil
” The skin on the outer part of the ear canal has special glands that produce ear wax, also known as cerumen. The purpose of this natural wax is to protect the ear from damage and infections. Normally, a small amount of wax accumulates and then dries up and falls out of the ear canal, carrying with it unwanted dust or sand particles.
Ear wax is helpful to coat the skin of the ear canal where it acts as a temporary water repellent. The absence of ear wax may result in dry, itchy ears, and even infection.
Unfortunately, many people suffer from hearing loss and discomfort from excess wax. All the scientific evidence is against using cotton swabs (like the leading brand of X-tips). Just one out of countless published examples, the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit cites patients who have pushed cotton swabs too far down their ear drum or too hard, which can “deafen a patient, cause vertigo, shatter the eardrum, or even paralyze the face .”
One solution that appears effective and safe on your ears and your wallet is ear oil – The Harvard Medical School Family Health Guide recommends using a few drops to “soften and lubricate the earwax” so it will come out on its own easier. You don’t need a prescription to get it, and you can get an ounce (of which a single does is only a few drops) for under 10 dollars. However, Be sure to NEVER use ear drops if you think you may have a perforated ear drum:
This warning (also from medicinenet.com) is consistent with all professional medical advice that I’ve seen:
“If the person does try OTC ear wax softeners, it is imperative to know that he or she does not have a perforated (punctured) eardrum prior to using the product. Putting ear wax softeners in the ear in the presence of a perforated eardrum may cause an infection in the middle ear. Similarly, simply washing one’s ear in the presence of a perforation may start an infection. If a person is uncertain whether or not he or she has a perforation (hole) in the eardrum, consult a physician. Some individuals may also be hypersensitive to products designed to soften ear wax.
Therefore, if pain, tenderness or a local skin rash develops, the use of these drops should be discontinued.”
If you’re interested in trying a new method of cleaning your ears, ear oil could be the solution you have been looking for.
