Earwax buildup can cause infection in the ear. Excessive buildup of earwax can lead to blockage of the ear canal and eventually cause loss of hearing. For individuals who use a hearing aid, earwax can prevent the device from working to its optimal potential.
To prevent earwax buildup reaching an advanced stage, you must ensure you look after your ear health. Keep your ears clean and dry at all times.
If you experience earwax buildup, you can use a warm compress. Alternatively, you can place a moist washcloth soaked in warm water, on the ear. The warmth will cause the earwax to gradually loosen and make way for easy removal.
In order to keep your ears dry, wipe them gently with a soft cloth after swimming or taking a shower. If you swim on a regular basis, you can consider using earplugs. You can also use ear drops that are specifically meant to treat swimmer’s ears.
For safe and effective cleaning of ears on a regular basis, you might want to consider Mack’s ProRinse Earwax Removal System, it is considered a top rated ear wax cleaner.
