I'm curious if you used a peroxide / warm water flush to remove the large wax build up from the female patient? About 12 years ago a doctor flushed my ear and then used a curette to remove a hard wax build up the size of a M&M. Few times since then have I felt so much relief and clarity of sound.
I can feel the build up in my ear and have been using peroxide / warm water to remove it although I cannot use a curette on myself for fear of puncturing my ear drum; Also I'm afraid of using pressurized water for the same reason. I suffer from the impacted hard wax build up and I am searching for an alternative to the peroxide / warm water flush to remove the wax. The water occasionally becomes trapped behind the wax, excessive amounts of peroxide causes ear canal dryness, and in cases of impacted hard wax build up it really is not effective beyond the first coat of wax leaving large chucks of hard wax attached to the ear canal and drum.
I've tried the candles and quite frankly they are possibly 5% as effective as a peroxide / warm water flush and thats being generous. Is the use of a curette and p/ww the only option?
