So say the ENT docs. Body temp water will help dissolve it.

Ear wax is my enemy. Sometimes I wake up in the morning and my ear canal is glued shut and I'm deaf.

I clean my ears out once every couple months but my Doctor said to do it once a week.

I had a pretty active wax production as a kid, but not so much anymore. Just a q-tip after shower takes care of any excess crap. cheers.gif

Hi Wolf Pup.

Quote:

Many problems with ear wax result from people using cotton tips in an attempt to remove the wax. But what they actually do is push the wax further into the ears, against the tide of migrating cells, causing it to impact and accumulate. So, to quote the words said by many Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) surgeons, "Do not put anything smaller than your elbow in your ear!".
