How To Treat Ear Wax Build Up

There are a number of ways to treat excess ear wax. The natural shape of the ear canal makes it difficult to clean and due to the delicate nature of the ear, it is not recommended sticking cotton buds or any other instrument into the ear. Doing so can increase the chances of blockage and risk damaging the fragile inner ear.

WAXSOL® is one of the safest ways to remove ear wax. Its gentle, water-based solution helps to moisten and loosen hardened wax in the ear allowing it to come out naturally.

Treating Ear Wax Build Up With Waxsol®

The first step to removing ear wax is to soften the ear wax with WAXSOL® ear drops. Just two doses of WAXSOL® over two nights is usually enough to soften the ear wax allowing it to come out on its own.
