Specialized Ear Cleaning Systems
Besides the primary methods outlined on this site, there are many specialized ear cleaning systems available on the market. These can be expensive. They are generally intended for doctors and hospitals, not for individuals, which is why they are priced higher than you might expect. On the other hand, they are, on the whole, tremendously more effective than the relatively simplistic methods of ear candles or ear picks. Some even let you look into your ear while you clean it!
Advanced Ear Cleaning - Is it for you?
There are a lot of different types of systems for cleaning your ears of earwax. Some electrocute the wax or burn it. Some wash it out or vibrate it loose. Whichever system you are considering , look for independent reviews of it around the net. If possible, ask your doctor which system he or she recommends. By all mean, visit the sellers' websites and evaluate their products, but do not trust the testimonials on their sites. These are almost always fake. You should only really be considering such a device if you have this problem chronically. If it is your first time having blocked ears, it will be cheaper for you to invest a small amount of money in one of the other earwax removal methods described on this site, such as ear candles or an ear irrigation device.
