There are times when regardless of the usually ear cleaning, stubborn ear wax still builds in the ear and blocks the canal. If the ear wax is left unattended, the build-up could turn into temporary loss of hearing. Moreover, stubborn ear wax could also become very painful.
Mostly, you need not go to a doctor to resolve the problem since you can do self-care over a six-day period to remove it. You can use an eyedropper and put three to four drops of baby oil to the ear to loosen the wax. Do this twice a day for five consecutive days to soften the ear wax.
The next thing you have to do is to fill a rubber-bulb syringe with warm water after day five and squirt it into the earn canal. Do this by tilting your head to one side, straighten your back and pull the outer ear taunt. When this is done, tilt your head to the other side with the ear facing the floor so that the water will drain. Turn on a blow-dryer and set at low heat setting. Use the dryer to gently dry your ear. Keep in mind that maintaining ear cleanliness is a good way to avoid serious health problems later.
