How to Get Ear Wax Out Of Your Ear

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 1 3

I remember asking my friend when I was much younger how to get ear wax of your ear, it was embarrassing and I couldn’t ask my parents about it, this was back in the 80’s when I was a teen, today, you don’t have to be embarrassed at all thanks to the internet, you can do a search and find the answer on how to get ear wax out of your ear quite easily.

Most people don’t know this but ear wax plays a pivotal role in your body, to keep ear infections out. Ear wax traps all those nasty micro-germs that can cause ear infections, but like anything in life, too much of it is not good, and too much ear wax build up can get stuck in your ear.

To remove ear wax is a delicate process, the inner skin and membranes inside your ears are very sensitive and can easily be damaged if not done correctly.

Here are some tips on how to get wax out:

- Head to your local pharmacy and get yourself ointments that contain carbamide peroxide, which helps break down wax build up. Always follow the enclosed instructions when applying any ointment to make sure you do not damage your inner ear, the instructions are not going to be as easy as this article detailing how to get ear wax out of your ear but most instructions are pretty descriptive.

- If you have baby oil, apply a couple of drops every day for a few days. Baby oil will help soften the hardened ear wax, make it moist and after a few days, you should be able to use an ear bud to remove most of the built up wax.

- Use warm unscented mineral oil or warm water, dab it in a cotton bulb and apply the bulb to your ear and keep it there for at least seven minutes. The warm mineral oil or warm water will help the ear wax melt so it will be easy to remove after you take out the cotton bulbs from your ear.

- If you have a strong ear wax build up, it’s important for you to visit your doctor. Serious wax build up is hard to remove and is very painful. It can also lead to a lot of infections if not treated promptly.
