Earwax is the bane of many people’s existence. It can accumulate in your ears and cause hearing problems, as well as itchy or painful ears. Thankfully, there are ear wax removal drops that help to soften, loosen, and remove this pesky substance.

Earwax removal drops is a medication that might work for adults with earwax problems because it releases oxygen and starts to foam when it comes in contact with the skin. This foaming helps break up and remove the wax, but take note that it is not recommended for children under 12 years old who might be allergic to this product.


This medication is for use only in the ear. This medication is applied into the ear, usually twice a day or as directed by your doctor. Do not use earwax removal drops for more than 4 days at a time unless instructed otherwise.

When you buy medicine, it is important to follow the instructions on the package. If you are unsure about any information, talk with your doctor or pharmacist.

It is important to follow the instructions on your prescription very carefully or else you may end up with too much medicine in your ear and risk dizziness. To lower the risk of having too much medication, hold the dropper in your hand for a few minutes before using it.

Make sure your hands are clean before applying ear drops. Place the dropper in the ear, tilting upwards if needed. Hold it straight over the canal and drop 5 to 10 drops into it for proper relief from your ear ache.

To keep the drops from rolling out of your ear, hold your earlobe up and back. When applying earwax removal drops to children, hold the earlobe down and back. Keep their head tilted for several minutes or insert a soft cotton plug in their ears to help them stay still and prevent any fluid from coming out.

After the wax is removed, gently rinse your ear with warm water or use an ear syringe to remove any leftover residue. For tips on using an ear syringe safely and effectively, talk to a trusted pharmacist or doctor. If you’re quite unsure of how to use ear drops, our audiologists at PA Center for Hearing and Balance can help.

The last thing you need to do is to rinse the dropper. If you do get the medication in your eyes, don’t panic! Rinse them with plenty of water and you’ll be good as new. If your condition persists for 4 days or worsens, or if you think that it might be more serious than what this medication can cover, visit a doctor immediately.


Take care of your ears just as much as you take care of the rest of yourself. They are a doorway to your inner self and earwax is an impurity that can cause more than just hearing problems.

At PA Center for Hearing and Balance, we are committed to help you enjoy better hearing. This includes professional ear cleaning, ear wax removal, hearing aid fitting, real ear measurement, etc.

Earwax Removal Drops Side Effects

If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention right away.

The majority of people find it completely painless to have their ears cleaned by a professional, but if it’s your first time or you are quite sensitive or ticklish, you may experience an uncomfortable feeling when they clean your ear.

Many adults have a problem with earwax buildup, which can be unpleasant and lead to discomfort. A good rule of thumb is to see your doctor or professional every six months for an ear cleaning, which will get rid of the wax buildup so you’re less likely to experience these symptoms.

We need to be very careful about what we put in our ears. Cotton swabs can cause more harm than good and are not the answer when it comes to earwax removal. Your body has a natural defense system that prevents infections from coming in through your ear canals, so don’t mess with this process by cleaning your ears using cotton swabs.
