Ear wax helps in natural ear lubrication.
Its role is to prevent the occurrence of diseases in this sensitive area, but produced in large amounts, can lead to itching, dizziness, and loss of hearing.
Using Q-tips is the worst thing you can do, because this practice pushes on the amount of wax causing obstruction and you can have symptoms such as:
– Tingling ears
– Hearing Problems
– The sensation of having something in your ear
– Sounds in your ears
– Itching of the ear canal
– To prevent these symptoms, you should clean the ears regularly.
Here are some remedies to remove wax excess:
Mix 3% hydrogen peroxide and water (in equal parts) and put a few drops in the ear. Shake your head for a few times to let the solution penetrate canals.
This oil is another herbal option for softening waxy plugs. All you have to do is to put two or three drops of olive oil in your ear, then sleep on the other side. Do this treatment 3 or 4 nights in a row, changing the ear.
This is another effective way to remove wax. Saturate a cotton disk in this solution: Dissolve one teaspoon of salt in half a cup of water (100 ml).
Put your head to one side to allow the drops to penetrate the ear. Wait a few minutes, then turn over to allow the solution to drain them. You can use a napkin.
Vinegar and alcohol solution
Put equal parts of vinegar and alcohol in a bowl. Soak a cotton pad and drip a few drops in each ear.
This natural product can be bought from any pharmacy. It’s extremely effective in removing waxy plugs. For better results, pour 4 drops in each ear, three times a day.
