Thread: Wax Guard Stuck in Ear???

  1. Default Wax Guard Stuck in Ear???

    I just removed my hearing aid and the wax guard is gone. I didn't see it fall out and I have more than thoroughly searched for it.

    Is it possible that it is stuck in my ear? My husband can.t see it but his sight is about as good as my hearing, lol!

    It is possible. You can try to wash out your ears in the shower, and that typically will clean out any debris from the ears. If you are really concerned, either visit your hearing aid dispenser, or the hospital and have them take out the wax guard.

    You could also use a bulb syringe from an ear washing kit and flush out your ear. What is good about this method is you can use gravity in your favor by positioning your ear with the wax guard over the sink and flushing it out with the bulb syringe. Close the drain on the sink so you will know when you have removed the wax guard.

    Thanks so much for your suggestions!


    I called my hearing aid dispenser and they recommended that I contact my ENT . . . . I have an appointment with him this afternoon.
