Ear wax is produced in the outer third of the ear canal. The fine hairs of the ear canal move the wax outward, pushing out the wax and dead skin cells. Healthy ear canals will be able to clean themselves. An excess of ear wax can increase the presence of bacteria in the ears, making them more susceptible to infections and adversely affecting hearing.
Cotton swabs are among the most popular ear cleaning options, despite the printed manufacturer’s warning to not use them for ear cleaning. The cotton swab cleaning method appears as a simple and effective cleaning method, but it actually results in ear wax being pushed further back into the ear canal. More ear wax being pushed back into the canal means more build up, which could lead to a complete blockage of the canal. The fragile eardrum is also put at risk of damage or rupture.
Ear wax removal syringes safely flush ears to loosen and remove ear wax. Its unique flared design prevents over-insertion, while the tip safely directs fluid to the ear canal walls. The exit portals allow drainage to prevent fluid buildup.
The inner ear helps us keep our balance and allows us to hear. Protect your ear health by cleaning them safely.
