The pharmacist would probably have the most up to date info. There are other similar products available that he can recommend if he can't get you Cerumenex. Answered by Fidel Mank 2 years ago.
Maybe it's a brand and the generic is all that is made now. It's out there. I'm a big Q-tip fan myself. Answered by Jamie Baumkirchner 2 years ago.

I'm 19 years old, and lately my ears have been getting clogged with ear wax. I have been to the doctors and they couldn't find anything wrong and they just said that I need to come in every few months to get them cleaned out. However I don't really want to keep going to the doctors because I know it costs my parents money each time. I have tried ear wax drops but they don't seem to work. Its really annoying because my ears get really clogged to the point where I have some hearing loss. I don't use q-tips anymore. Is there any home treatments that would clean them out safely? Today my ears feel like Its the wet kind of wax. Is there anyway to prevent this from happening? any other advice, thanks Is it ok to wear my ipod ear phones or do they push my ear wax farther into my ear? Answered by Doretha Fels 2 years ago.
they would probably compact your ear wax you should buy cerumenex ear wax cleaner and follow the directions explicitly ( 2 days of application of drops), and buy a ear syringe and have someone at home do a flush with warm water with the ear syringe.. this is the only thing other than candeling, which you would have to pay for anyway at a holistic clinic...

Ear wax is cerumen. Excessive cerumen is called "cerumenosis." Patient Preparation/Education § If possible, use wax softening ear drops for 3-5 days before procedure (Debrox, Cerumenex) § Advise patient that he may feel pressure, dizziness, or vertigo during the procedure § Patient should alert NP if pain or discomfort occurs o Procedure § Ear syringe or Water Pik on low setting § Irrigating solution should be 1:1 mixture of warm water and hydrogen peroxide § Basin § Protective drapes o After irrigation § Consider having the patient mix 50% rubbing alcohol and 50% white vinegar and apply drops of it once a day after bathing to the ear canal for 2-3 days after the procedure to prevent otitis externa § Instruct patient to call or return if following occur: hearing loss, ear pain or fullness, discharge, tinnitus § Some people, especially the elderly, may require regular ear hygiene. · Advise patient to use 2 drops of baby or mineral oil once or twice a week to soften wax so that it expels itself, or to purchase wax softening ear drops and use as directed on package. § Remind patient never to put anything in ear canal, especially commercial cotton tip applicators.

When I was little this would happen to me a lot because I had ear infections constantly from being sick all the time. Another thing might be water in your ears---try turning your head sideways, pouring a cap full of rubbing alcohol in your ear, then turning your head to the other side to let the alcohol out. Do this over a sink or bathtub of course. If this doesn't help and it doesn't stop, I'd see a doc. Answered by Alyson Howton 2 years ago.
It could be that he needs to have his ears cleaned out. He should go to an ENT doctor and have them look at his ears to see if there's caked up wax in there. When the wax breaks a little lose, it can make a crunchy kind of noise. If it is caked up, the doctor can clean it out. Just FYI. When the doctor pulls out the wax, it can be a little painful on the ear drum (if it's stuck down). So, he should be prepared for that. Answered by Carli Perra 2 years ago.

Fullness in ears and decreased hearing?
When I got out of the shower yesterday, I noticed a fullness in my right ear. I can still hear, but much less on my right side now. What is this, and how can I treat it?
Asked by Birgit Collelo 2 years ago.
Swimmer's ear: Wax softener such as ordinary olive oil, Debrox, or Cerumenex are useful; however, all commercial products may be irritating, especially if not used properly. Cerumenex, for example, must be flushed out of ear within 30 minutes using warm water. Two warning: The water must be as close to body temperature as possible; the use of cold water may result in dizziness and vomiting. Washing should never be tried if there is any question about the condition of the eardrum; it must be intact and undamaged. And good luck. Answered by Collette Anzideo 2 years ago.
IF your ear worsen you need to get it checked by a doctor. You could have a slight inner ear infection on top of that swimmers ear. I had the same problem last year and never in my life would I have thought I would get that from showering. But it could happen. Hope this helps Answered by Stuart Bayete 2 years ago.
You probably got it filled with water lol. This may sound crazy, and there are probably other ways to do it, but get somone to suck your ear. LOL i wanted to say that. Okokok get somthing to suck your ear and it might come out. Buy a plunger and use that, just stick it to the side of your head man. Hope it helps. Answered by Jerome Cotelesse 2 years ago.
What can you do to unclog a ear blocked with wax? i found out a q-tip isn't the best idea.
Asked by Rusty Nicklas 2 years ago.
Most of the time the ear canals are self-cleaning; that is, there is a slow and orderly migration of the skin lining the ear canal from the eardrum to the outer opening of the ear. Old earwax is constantly being transported from the deeper areas of the ear canal out to the opening where it usually dries, flakes, and falls out. Under ideal circumstances, you should never have to clean your ear canals. However, we all know that this isn't always the case. Ear wax may accumulate in the ear canal for a variety of reasons, including narrowing of the ear canal resulting from infections or diseases of the skin, bones, or connective tissue; production of a less fluid form of cerumen (more common in older persons due to aging of the glands that produce ear wax); or overproduction of cerumen in response to trauma or blockage within the ear canal. When wax has accumulated so much that it blocks the ear canal (and interferes with hearing), your physician may have to wash it out (known as lavage), vacuum it, or remove it with special instruments. Alternatively, your physician may prescribe ear drops that are designed to soften the wax (such as trolamine polypeptide oleate-ear drops [Cerumenex]) . You may first try an over-the-counter product (OTC) if you need to remove ear wax, such as Debrox or Murine Ear Drops. If your ear still feels blocked after using these drops, you should consult your physician. If you do try OTC ear wax softeners, it is imperative to know that you do not have a perforated (punctured) eardrum prior to using the product. Putting ear wax softeners in your ear in the presence of a perforated eardrum may cause an infection in the middle ear. Similarly, simply washing one's ear in the presence of a perforation may start an infection. If you are uncertain whether or not you have a perforation (hole) in your eardrum, consult your physician. Some individuals may also be hypersensitive to products designed to soften ear wax. Therefore, if pain, tenderness or a local skin rash develops, you should discontinue the use of these drops. Is it OK to use Q-tips? Wax is not formed in the deep part of the ear canal near the eardrum, but only in the outer part of the canal near the external opening. So when a doctor sees that a patient has wax pushed up against the eardrum, he or she knows that it is often because the patient has been probing his or her ear with such things as Q-Tips, bobby pins or twisted napkin corners! Such objects only serve as ramrods to push the wax deeper into the ear. Also, the skin of the ear canal and the eardrum is very thin and fragile, and is easily injured. The ear canal is more prone to infection after it has been whipped clean of the "good," coating-type wax. Doctors see many perforated eardrums as a result of the above efforts. Some doctors recommend the use of two drops of mineral oil in each ear one day per week at bedtime to help liquefy ear wax in people who have a history of recurrent problems with ear wax. This should only be done if the individual has an intact eardrum and no other known problems with the ears. Answered by Mary Klar 2 years ago.
Cheapest and effective is just to get a syringe with warm water and squirt inside the ear - not too hard neither too soft - but may require repetitions 20+ Whenever I had this problem I went to clinic that's all they did using large syringes. Answered by Missy Amicone 2 years ago.
