For the last few years I have had to go to a doctor every 3 months or less to clean out excessive ear wax.
I am no longer using q-tips and any time I try peroxide or other things, it seems to push the ear wax in and I end up not even able to hear. I also have had no luck with ear candling and won't try that again.
Does anyone have suggestions on what I can use to break up ear wax and not impact my hearing.
I am currently 17 years old. I had approximately 9 tympanoplasties. When I was about 2 years of age both of my ear drums ruptured. I have had no success with the tympanoplasties. I recently found out that my eustachian tubes are nearly closed off. I have and still do, an extreme case of chronic ear wax build up. I have not used head phones for the better part of 3 years. I cannot use the "ear candling" method, nor the "peroxide" method. Does anyone know of a procedure I can do, without have to get a eustachian tubectomy?
If you go to the pharmacy there are liquids drops you put in your ears for about 5 minutes and it 'melts' the wax. I think fill a bath tub and slip my head under the water and wiggle my ears and pull at my ear lobes to help put water through my ears and wash the stuff out!
