suffering from the problem of ear wax..

I have been suffering from the problem of ear wax from my childhood. I take utmost protection but then also this problem occurs to me at a gap of every 1 to 1.5 years. Symptoms are usually figh fever, pain in ears, unable to hear to faint sounds etc. Earlier my doctor here used to wash my ears with water. But last time I went to a new doctor and he tried to drill out the wax from my ears which caused a wound inside as it get dried and was difficult to clean. I request you to kindly provide me some solution to this problem. Also my ears are the most sensitive part of my body. I was not able to learn swimming as during my swimming class I suffered from a ear infection.

My advice is and I have just recently done it is. To get candles from the vitamin store and I dont know exactly what the candle is called but you put it in your ear you put a paper plate at the orange line after you cut a hole in the middle of it.

Then you stick the bottom of the candle in your ear and light the top of it and it creates a suction or somewhat and removes some of the ear wax in your ears.

You can unwrap it at the bottom when the candle has burned down to the orange line. You also have to cut the tip of the candle when it gets down so far to prevent it from falling to the ground.

This is my advice and since I do not know what it is called you should ask the cashier or look up online exactly what its called.

It is very natural and it works. :)

Ear wax does not produce fever or ear pain. It may cause only a block in the ears. Wax is normally produced in the ear canal. If it gets impacted and blocks the canal it has to be removed by a doctor. The ear canal in some people is narrow or there is excessive production of wax - these patients require regular cleaning of their ear wax. For the others regular cleaning of ear wax is not required. Using ear buds or any other object by yourself to clean the wax may damage your ear drum and you may lose your hearing. Consult your ENT surgeon who will guide you.
