Earwax is naturally formed by your body to protect your ear. If you do need periodic inspection or a cleaning procedure, perhaps because you have a history of excessive earwax or because you belong to one of the high-risk groups, ask your doctor if there is anything you should do to prevent or reduce the accumulation of earwax.
You should never insert any object into your ear, Doctors often say that you should never stick anything that is smaller than your elbow into your ear.
Cotton buds can simply push the wax deeper into the ear and may worsen an impaction or traumatise the ear canal.
The procedures used by your healthcare professional to remove earwax should not be painful.
If you are putting a liquid into the ear, it may feel strange, but should not hurt.
No evidence is available to suggest that ear candles are an effective treatment to remove earwax accumulation.
In addition, they are associated with considerable risk (burns, tympanic membrane perforation, etc.).
One bottle of evaQwaxTM Ear Spray contains enough liquid for, approximately, 16-days of treatment (based on the assumption that it is used in one single ear, three times a day).
If you have been prescribed antibiotic ear drops and evaQwaxTM Ear Spray at the same time, the hydrogen peroxide in evaQwaxTM Ear Spray may damage the active ingredients in antibiotics. To avoid this, it is important that you use evaQwaxTM Ear Spray first, then, 30 minutes later, the antibiotic ear drops.
