    Default Earwax Removal Tool (Cerumen)

    I just picked up a different wax removal kit on Amazon. It's inexpensive and complete. Certainly better than the drug store one I had. There are a number of sellers at different price points. Mine was under $9.


    I like the ear plugs which let one loosen wax for a while without keeping my head tilted. The basin keeps me dry. The irrigation tool is better than the drugstore variety.

    There is another one on TV that seems to require no liquid and is a bit like a corkscrew...looks like it might hurt.

    When I have a wax problem, it is in the ear canal. Looks like the device tries to keep gunk from getting lower but can't do anything about it when it does. Anybody tried this sucker?

    I see my ENT approximately every 2 months for ear wax removal. He gets the job done in about 5 minutes. I've never had any look using any method removing wax on my own and yes I do follow instructions.

    In Canada, at least, GPs (or their staff) can do this. I often just go to the walk-in clinic down the street.

    It really helps if you put a little mineral oil, glycerine, or olive oil in your ear -- with a cotton stopper -- the night before.

    My doctor (GP) also recommended that once a month or so, I do that with the oil, and then just wash out my ears in the shower the next morning.

    Actually, that brand is available at Rite-Aid (at least the one near me). It does work pretty well, but I shoot a lot, so when I pull my foam hearing protectors out of my ears every week, they seem to take care of any excess wax. These rinses should probably be used only at your doctor's recommendation. The wax does serve a purpose after all.
