Suggest ways to get rid of ear wax

I have been using in ear hearing aids. often when replacing them there is a need to remove wax accumulated. usually the technician can do so with an instrument. The last time this was not the result I was told to use ear drops for 3 days and come back.the wax was still hard. I went to my ear doctor who said you should never use ear drops. she was able to remove the wax with some difficulty. I am in the same position now and am reluctant to use the ear drops again recommended by my technician.

Hello welcome to the health care magic

For wax removal you can Consult otorhinolaryngologist.
The doctor will remove wax by instrument or by syringing like procedure.

Ear drops also can be used to loosen wax.
But as wax accumulation more it's better to remove it by doctor
