I've had to get this done from a doctor before. Very simple process and it definitely got a ton of wax out of my ear... pretty gross but amazing effects. So should I bypass this whole swimmer's ear from CVS stuff?Originally posted by: redgtxdi
You can do this with a bulb syringe in the shower............(Yes, you're forcing more water into your ear to expel the water that's currently stuck in there)...........or you can go to a doctor and they will do it with a much more powerful lavage device.
Problem is more likely that you have a 'plug' of wax in your ear and the water has made its way 'behind' this plug. A good ear lavage is the only thing that will clear it out. It will be disgusting and the site of it will probably make you gag. However, once cleared out you will hear like you've never heard before........seriously!
If you do it with a bulb syringe in the shower just be sure to use luke-warm water. Cup some water with your hand next to your chest and syphon the water into the bulb and then squirt it into your ear canal. Too hot or too cold could make you a little dizzy, but nothing to worry about. It may take several attempts to clear the wax plug out of your ear this way. A doctor can do it more efficiently but of course you have to...........well.........go to the doctor for that.
