Cerumen Ear Plugs?
Hello …, my left ear is blocked by a pile of cerumen. Should I consult a doctor directly or use cerumen softener drops first? Thank you … Thank you …
Cerumen prop is a condition where the ear cavity is blocked by cerumen. Serumen can be soft and wet or dry. Generally serumen will evaporate due to air and body temperature, so that cerumen blockage rarely occurs. However, often people clean their ears using a cotton bud. As a result the cerumen actually pushed in and solidified.
Ear drops to soften serumen are useful so that the earwax is easily removed. Generally this drug is not dangerous. However, it never hurts if you consult first with your doctor yr. The doctor will assess whether your cerumen can be overcome by irrigation, suction, or with just drops. Also the use of drops must be careful, pay attention to whether the eardrum is intact or there is a tear. Avoid using ear drops if the eardrum is not intact.
Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
