What Causes An Earache?
Earaches are usually caused by a blockage of ear wax in the ear canal of the middle ear or by a virus such as a cold. Often a person suffering from an earache will feel one or more of these symptoms:1
- A dull earache
- A sharp ear-pain
- A burning earache
These symptoms will go away if you are suffering from a cold.1
WAXSOL® is one treatment that may deliver effective relief from earaches associated with ear wax build up.
Simply use the dropper to fill the ear canal with WAXSOL®. The solution works to soften the hardened ear wax while you sleep. If your earache is not caused by ear wax, speak to your pharmacist or doctor about other options which may include:2
- Paracetamol or other pain-relieving medications
- Antibiotics with steroid or antibacterial qualities
- Placing a hot or cold pack on the affected ear
- Sitting upright can reduce the pressure in the ear
