 Earwax Removal

                Is there a good home remedy for removal of excess ear wax?
        While using a Q-tip to clean his ear, a friend of mine seems to hav
        clogged his ear c{*filter*}with wax.  He is experienceing ringing in his
        ear and partial hearing loss.  Regular ear drops seem to be having
        little effect.  He has also tried Hydrogen Peroxide.e

He probably impacted the wax against his eardrum, or worse, tore
the drum with the Q tip.  Otolaryngologists get livid when people
stick things into their ears.  Now he'll need a visit to the
ear doc and while there have them show him how to gently use
an ear syringe.  In stubborn cases there is debrox or some
other wax disolving agent.

My ear and eye doctor cleaned my ear of wax. He told me I'd compacted it
using Q-tips. He said *never* use Q-tips.

My family doctor said, that do not use anything smaller than 1 meter of
2''x4'' wood if you are trying to clean your ears.

I use Q-tips in my ears daily.  My ears itch if I don't.  I don't
clean deeply (I know where the eardrum is) and have excellent
hearing.  Now, is it just _some_ people who shouldn't use Q-tips?
Does the quantity of earwax have anything to do with it?  Any
other closet Q-tip abusers out there?

I find Q-tips useful for soaking up water or liquefied wax (softened
by water when washing my hair) but absolutely incapable of removing
solid pieces of wax.  Someone who was determined to make them do that
would probably injure him/herself.

Standard advice is to never put anything in your ear but your elbow.

If Q-tips are so bad then why are ear plugs safe?  Those custom molded
ones take quite a bit of forcing to get into the ear and go pretty deep.
I suppose they could cause wax build-up but don't touch the eardrum.
It's still seems contradictory to me.

My ears itch too, and using a Q-tip seems to take care of the
problem.

I once heard that eating a lot of diary products can cause
excess production of ear wax. I have noticed that whenever
I eat a lot of cheese, 2-3 days later my ears have
a much heavier buildup of wax.

Just my .02.

Q tips can go in far enough to damage the eardrum.  If your plugs
can go in that far, they aren't safe either.
