My hearing suddenly became reduced and I felt something pressing on my ear drum, so I figured it was a build up of wax. I researched the home remedies on the internet, determined that candles is a hoax and decided to try peroxide.

I put 3% peroxide in my ear, layed on my side for 10 minutes and tried to flush it using warm water in a baby bulb syringe (available at any baby supply store). After 3 or 4 attempts this procedure DID NOT work. Our peroxide was old, maybe that's why, because other people said this method worked. Or maybe I didn't use a strong enough flush with the syringe.

Then I tried the olive oil method. I squirted a few drops of olive oil in my ear with an ear dropper, layed on my side for 10 minutes and then did a flush with warm water and the bulb syringe. This time, I made sure the stream from the syringe was strong. I tilted my ear over the sink during the flush and voila! Just like others had reported, a pea sized ball of gooey yucky wax was laying in the sink. First try! So I decided to use the olive oil method again on the other ear. Sure enough, a ball of wax came right out the first time!

I don't know if peroxide did not work due to something I was doing wrong, I can only assume that is the case. One thing to keep in mind is the peroxide irritates the ear and causes minor discomfort for some time, while the olive oil does not. Next time, I am doing the olive oil first!

Thanks for your post, Kathy! My left ear had been bothering me to the point of hurting. I knew it was ear wax buildup but didn't want the expense of a doctor visit. This olive oil method sounded the safest. It worked just like you said it would! I will definitely use this method the next time I have this problem. Thanks a bunch!

I used olive oil and then rinsed with a water pick omg it worked great thank you for the idea of olive oil ive had no hearing for a week a dime size chunk of hard wax came out and i can hear again thanx again!!!

I have used the drug store remedies with no success. This remedy worked like a charm. I BARELY warmed the olive oil. After ten minutes I used a baby nose syringe with BARELY warmed water. It took at least 6 syringes of water until the wax came out. Mine was pretty impacted. Success!! I will definitely use this method again!

Go to the doctor. I tried this olive oil treatment bc of the wax in my ear and honestly, it only made it worse. I was panicked bc I initially didn't know what was wrong and realized it was wax so I tried this bc I was so uncomfortable and unable to hear in my left ear. The olive oil did NOT work. I wish it had, trust me. I went to the Minute Clinic and she suggested Debrox Earwax Removal Kit. It takes a few days but we shall see. I hope it works I hate this feeling.
