This week I want to talk to you about Ear Irrigation!
I appreciate ear irrigation is not the most exciting of topics to discuss, but the build up of ear wax is such a big problem I wanted to search out the best product to help.
Firstly it is necessary to understand that Wax is an important and natural secretion found in the ear. It keeps the ear canal lubricated and protects the ear against dust, dirt and bacteria, which helps to prevent infection.
If wax is not causing any problems, it is best left alone. However if it is causing problems or has not fallen our within 5 days its a good idea to speak to your GP or pharmacist for advice.
Usually earwax falls out on its own. If it doesn’t and blocks your ear, put 2 to 3 drops of olive or almond oil in your ear twice a day for a few days.
Over 2 weeks lumps of earwax should fall out of your ear, especially at night when you’re lying down.
There is no evidence that ear candles or ear vacuums get rid of earwax.
Don’t use your fingers or any objects like cotton buds to remove earwax. This will push it in and make it worse.
If wax build up is causing deafness, problems with hearing aids, or is uncomfortable, it may need to be removed. Some people with tinnitus feel that their tinnitus is more troublesome when their ears are full of wax.
