There. Fixed it for you.
I had it done because I couldn't shake the water out my ears after scuba diving. And it worked great for me, even sucked out some gray matter I rarely use keep it,,, YMMV
It's plausible it could heat/evaporate/draw water out.
It's the earwax claims that get a little shady.
And when they say it will extract the evil humours from your brain, that's exaggerated: it only works for that 54% of the time; not much better than placebo
But why wait until the ear is plugged?
Can’t you clean your ears when you take your annual shower?
LOL Even made your dog laugh!
Ear candling is one of those things that has been seriously, totally, and absolutely debunked.
Sort of like the Wicked Witch.
My doctor says NO q-tips. Johnson’s baby oil helps.
Google search earwax candles. They work great
I got mine thoroughly cleaned by an ENT years ago and it was amazing. Since then I keep up with maintenance using Debrox and have avoided further issues. I let it soak for a while, then use the rubber bulb thing to rinse it with warm water, then I use suction from the bulb at the end to get the water and melted wax out and its usually an "ahhh" experience after that.
Wearing earplugs will make my ears get clogged because they seem to push wax that was in the process of making its way out right back into the ears.
Add 3 drops of BABY OIL, it HAS to be baby oil, to each ear for a week. Then use an ear syringe with warm water & attempt to flush it out. The baby oil acts as a penetrating oil of sorts to enable the wax chunk to release from the ear canal. My doc taught me this. If the chunk lets loose, but is too big to fall out & is rattling around, go to the walk-in clinic & have them fish it out. You will likely re-impact it if you try it yourself.
It helps if when you put a candle in your ear, you play Elton John's candle in the wind. (I'm not sure exactly how that would work out on an accordion though)
I tried it probably fifteen years ago, and it did nothing. It didn't take a second helping to convince me.
It doesn't have to be baby oil. You can also use 3-in-one oil, 80W gear oil, and extra virgin hand-pressed artisanal pistachio oil. My chiropractor even uses 10W30 when his pistacio oil reserves are running low in the off season.
See an ENT (Otolaryngologist), they'll get it out. Because my ears get so impacted, I use an ear syringe regularly, using softening solution first, so I don't have to go back to my ENT.
I don't get it as bad as I did when I was gigging weekly, but I'm still prone to it. Nothing like the feeling when you're cleaned out, everything sounds so loud!
I take a good steamy shower then the ear bulb with barely warm water. Amazing what gets washed out
so far, I've tried 2 kinds of earwax drops, olive oil, and pure hydrogen peroxide. after leaving it in, I go use the syringe. no wax comes out at all. I am starting to wonder if the problem is something worse than wax.
tell me this, if anybody knows: I put the peroxide in and it sizzles and pops. would it do that if there was no wax?
this is getting very tedious.
If you used “pure” hydrogen peroxide, your head would have exploded and your brains and earwax would be all over the walls and ceiling.
I used whatever it is they sell at the drug store that says "hydrogen peroxide" on the label. it could nitro glycerin for all I know.
It’s explosive, can be used as rocket fuel, drugstore peroxide is usually 3%.
We had 10% in the lab, maybe 30%.
But yes you meant just the diluted drugstore peroxide , nothing else.
Have you watched any youtube videos of earwax removal?
I did. Because of this thread. (I won't have an appetite again until Easter.) Some of the procedures were pretty labor-intensive and required extensive use of special tools. And the stuff they pulled out of peoples' heads!! I doubt it would've been cleared by drops and rinsing.
If it hasn't worked so far, I'd say go see an ENT doc. Ears are not something to play around with - especially for musicians.
