Looking After The Ears

Accumulation of wax in the ear may cause discomfort and even mild deafness. There may be popping or bubbling noises in the ear. Do not try to clear out or remove a foreign object from the ear canal with anything pointed, such as a hair pin. The surface of the canal can easily be scratched or the ear-drum damaged.

A doctor can genarally remove wax by syringing the ear with warm water of a solution of sodium bicarbonate. Sometimes it may be necessary first to soften the wax with warm olive oil or liquid paraffin in the ear.
