When we got too much earwax or hardened earwax can cause a blockage in the ear, resulting in earaches, ringing in the ears, or temporary hearing loss. We will go to the clinic and ask the doctor for help. They usually use otoscope to check your ear, and your doctor will perform the irrigation in their office using a syringe-like tool. This tool will be used to insert water or a water and saline mixture into the ear to flush out the wax. It’s absolutely safer and better than using cotton swabs.
Ear irrigation also commonly use at home. The most common method is to use a dropper to insert baby oil, mineral oil, or specialized medication into the ear to soften the wax. The process is as follows:
- Put several drops in your ear 2~3 times daily over a period of a few days.
- After the wax has softened, rinse the wax using a syringe filled with water (room temperature or slightly warm) or a mixture of water and saline.
The Risk of Using Ear Irrigation
If your eardrums are damaged or your immune system is low, do not do ear irrigation. In particular, people who have an infection in the ear canal should also not have ear irrigation. While ear irrigation is a relatively common and safe method, there are certain risks:
Ear canal discomfort or pain
Temporary or permanent deafness
These are all possible complications and side effects after ear irrigation. If you experience pain or discomfort, make an appointment to see your doctor immediately in case of perforated eardrum or other ear damage.
