Even when I was a child, I was sensitive about my ears. I didn't like for anyone to touch them, or even for the doctor to look in them using that ear device. These days I'm still squeamish, when some Nurse Ratchett tries to dig deep into my ear, with one of those new ear thermometers. Sometimes I think they are trying to rupture my eardrum.
So naturally, the idea of getting my ears washed out for excess wax removal, doesn't sound like my ideal day. So I thought I would try a product that I saw at Walgreens. It's called Debrox Earwax Removal Aid. It's basically carbamide peroxide, and it's very gentle and safe. It helps to soften and remove extra earwax.
You just tilt your head sideways and place 5-10 drops into your ear. You should not place the applicator into the ear canal. (I like that!) You should keep your head tilted for awhile, or place cotton in your ear, to help keep the ear drops in place. You will feel a bit of a bubbling sensation, as the peroxide begins to foam. After a few minutes, you can repeat in the other ear.
It should be used twice a day, for four days. My problem is that I tend not to stay with the regimen. I usually quit too soon. I get good temporary relief from excess wax, but would definitely get better results if I stuck with the directions. I use these drops as needed for wax removal. It's a good product, and one even I (with my sensitive ears) can tolerate.
