How to Remove Ear Wax with Warm Water
Ear wax normally protects the ear canal from infection and injury. Usually it is wise to removed, preferably by irrigating the ear canal. For this purpose, it is best to use ear canal.
For this purpose, it is best to use a small bowl of warm soapy water and a soft rubber bulb syringe. Fill the syringe and gently insert the tip into ear canal. Carefully squeeze the syringe, holding another bowl under the ear to catch the excess water. Repeat until the wax is removed.
If this method is not successful, see your family physician. Do not attempt to dig the wax out yourself. You may puncture the drum and produce a middle ear infection which might lead on to permanent loss of hearing.
