Typically ear wax does its job without causing any problems so avoid the temptation to remove it.
If ear wax builds up and doesn't clear up, put a few drops of mineral oil in your ears twice daily for a few days. This should soften the wax allowing it to fall out on its own.
|Use medicines with caution|
Some over-the-counter ear drops can be caustic and if the wax is not cleared up the medication can build up and cause contact dermatitis. Ask your doctor or pharacist for advice on whcih product is best for you.
