Peroxide bubbles to help clear out some of the "stuck" wax. Oil actually softens it up and seems to work better though. And the best we found was just using water shooting at a higher pressure to push it out. One of our boys had impacted wax a few times, and the water shooting in there worked best.
...........My docs nurse used a small squeeze bulb with warm water and simply squirted it into my ear . It worked very well ! They sell these ear wax 'kits' at W. Mt. that contain a small squeeze bulb . , fordyHow do you use the oil to get the wax out?
My daughter has had this wax in her ear we cannot seem to get out. We've tried peroxide quite a few times, along with qtips, and we can't get it.

Nope. Fungal infections can respond to anti-fungal creams, zinc compounds, alcohol and sometimes vinegar. If you go to a drugstore you may find a product called "swimmer's ear." It is a tiny bottle with 95% alcohol and a little glycerine, used to dry out the ear canal.Gross. What about ear wax candles? Would that work?
I have autoimmune problems, one symptom is VERY itchy ears and tons of wax. I tried a few medications but none did any better than regularly cleaning my ears with alcohol, H2O2, or vinegar on a Q-tip and...
Grossness alert. :lookout:
About once a week, I take a sterile Bic pen cap to scrape out the canal. The cap is not so long that I can damage the drum and the shape of it is more effective than any thing I've found at bringing wax out. It is something you do by feel, so I seriously doubt you could safely do it to someone else.
I know people are going to scream about putting things in your ear, but I've had this problem for 40 years and it has been the only solution other than frequent doctor visits.
I second using oil in ears! I have read in numerous places that hydrogen peroxide should not be used in the ears. Ha I almost typed eyes, it defiantly shod not be used there! Anyways one of my kiddos gets major ear wax build up. I melt and somewhat cool to be warm but not too hot a dabble of coconut oil. Sometimes I use olive oil with garlic if we're eating it for dinner anyways or maybe I just use the garlic when I think it's a fungal thing from too much swimming or spelunking.
Anyways the oil softens up the wax making it easier to retrieve with a q tip, or eve just flush out with warm water and one of those thingies that looks like a old bicycle horn if a mouse rode a bicycle.
I have never used the earwax candles but have heard from a few people that they work wonders and from others that they are uncomfortable and had no effect, or is it affect?
I do that ever so often. Just a squeeze bulb and some warm water. A few squirts (it usually takes me 3 or 4 tries to figure out the correct angle, which is never quite what I think it would be) and a few good squirts and the wax is laying in the bottom of the bathroom sink and I can HEAR again............My docs nurse used a small squeeze bulb with warm water and simply squirted it into my ear .
