The Issue With Cotton Buds…The two most common problems related to the use of cotton buds are:
- Eardrum perforation
- Impacted earwax
Which Cotton Bud Alternatives Should I Consider?
A good practice is to consult with a hearing specialist who can recommend the most effective way to maintain good ear hygiene. The healthcare industry also offers a variety of methods and products that are convenient to use.
Using an ear wax remover and washing with a suitable cleaning solution is one of the effective ways to clean the ear canal from the accumulated cerumen and dirt. There are different models available and as the process of cleaning is not particularly pleasant, it is important to choose a product that you feel comfortable using.
The Earpal Ear Wax Remover is one of the safest ways to remove wax from your ears. Extracting ear wax from the ear canal can be achieved easily and effectively. Due to the shape of each Earpal, the tool can't touch or perforate the eardrum accidentally - making it the only safe way to remove earwax. Another alternative is using an olive oil spray which helps to soften wax to ease the removal process prior to syringing. This helps make syringing of wax more effective.
