Ear wax is natural and it defends the body from mechanisms. It traps dirt and foreign particles from getting into the ear, which can cause bacteria. When you have ear wax, it is not something to worry about. Ear wax is secreted in the glands of the outer half of the ear canal. When you have ear wax there is a natural way to remove it without damaging your ear drum.
It is a good idea to not put ink pens and Q-tips in the ears to clean them. When people use these objects for a long period of time, it can cause you to go deaf. Most ear wax comes out on its own or is washed out, so more ear wax can take its place. That way no dirt and foreign particles can get into the inner part of the ear.
The only time you should remove ear wax is when you have an earache or you have a difficult time hearing.
1. Water and hydrogen peroxide are a natural remedy to remove ear wax.
Hydrogen peroxide is a natural substance. Some people think it’s a chemical. It disinfects, softens ear wax, and protects your ears from getting an infection. When you use hydrogen peroxide and water you will need to know what you’re doing and what tools to use.
You will first need one-fourth cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide and water, along with one cotton ball. Mix the hydrogen peroxide together and soak the cotton ball in the solution. Tilt your head on the opposite side of the ear that is affected. Pour the mixture and then squeeze the cotton ball into the ear.
Tilt your head in this position for a few minutes. After a few minutes, tilt your head straight, so that solution drains out of your ear. You may hear a popping noise in your ear when the wax is coming out.
