Your body naturally produces ear wax to help protect your ears. The sticky substance blocks dust, dirt and other impurities from entering your ear canal and fights the effects of certain bacteria and fungi that can cause infections. Unfortunately, ear wax can accumulate in the ears, leading to uncomfortable feelings of fullness or difficulty hearing. Experts caution against trying to clean out earwax with cotton swabs and similar objects, as doing so could injure your ears. Instead, it is best to use an ear syringe to suction out the wax or ear wax removal drops that dissolve or soften wax.
Many people prefer to take a natural approach to ear care by using natural products to address ear care concerns. You can find natural ear drops for earaches, wax, ringing in the ears and other common problems. Often, these products contain ingredients that are commonly used in homeopathy, a system of natural healing. Natural ear drops are not evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and there is not enough evidence to prove that any product will work for everyone who uses it.
Earplugs can be used for a wide range of purposes. In loud settings, earplugs can reduce your risk of developing temporary hearing loss or ringing in the ears and lower the likelihood of permanent hearing loss in the future. You may also use earplugs to keep water out of your ears, to reduce pressure in your ears while flying and to make your room quieter for restful sleep.
Before using ear drops or wax removal products, you should consult your medical provider. While ear care products do not require a doctor's prescription, some may not be ideal for everyone. Your health care provider can help you determine which ear care products are the best match for your specific needs. Once you receive your purchase, make sure to read the directions provided by the manufacturer carefully and to follow them closely unless a medical professional gives you other instructions.
