The best thing to try and treat this at home is debrox over the counter to soften the wax and a bulb sprayer to loosen it and remove it

that is really the only thing that works at home

is this helpful?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
