      Here in germany the ENT is doing that. Do you know that you have too much earwax?

      Keep putting olive oil drops in to your ear from the chemist with a dropper to soften the wax then arange to see your doctor to arange wax removal.

      It is so important to soften the wax for at least a week to ten days prior to wax removal....lots of love glynis

      ENT can do it.
      In England we have the NHS so doctor or nurse or ENT or private ENT can do it.
      Your ear drum can get crusted up with wax and this can cause pain and inflamation to remove it so using olive oil drops prior to wax removal just makes the wax easyer to move safely...lots of love glynis

      I've read an article that says just simple water works best to soften the wax.

      Maybe not the best idea, but I use wax-softening drops, and a few days later, I use a sanitized comedone removal tool (with a loop) to rake the wax out, as it usually settles in the bottom of the ear canal. I removed quite a bit of wax this way recently.

      Does anyone know of any way to Prevent ear wax compacting. I seem to have a chronic problem of this now because I wear earplugs at work. I've read that putting in and taking out earplugs creates more wax, and then the other problem is (going to sound kind of gross..) that when it's warm out at work the wax tends to get more liquidy and seems to easily get pushed over my eardrum. every couple of weeks it seems I deal with this which leads to slight hearing loss, a kind of full feeling and louder T. I don't want to have to get my ears syringed all the time.
