Earwax MD sets itself apart from other products by delivering a safe and innovative dual action mechanism technology that is proven to be effective in 86% of patients in one treatment. While other products do nothing more than soften wax, and typically require multiple treatments per day for four days, Earwax MD dissolves earwax in a single treatment.
Earwax is naturally produced in the ear canal, and serves several biological purposes. Earwax protects our ears by trapping bugs, dust, hair, skin and dirt, and naturally works its way out of the ear canal (Ew!). In some cases, earwax can be overproduced, or pushed down into the canal by cotton swabs. Use Earwax MD to keep a clear and healthy ear canal.
Every patient is different, but some common symptoms of earwax impaction are:
Fullness of the ear
Temporary hearing loss
Overall ear discomfort
Earwax MD is proven to alleviate common symptoms in earwax impaction. Click here to read our article, Innovations in Cerumen Removal, to review details of the clinical study.
Earwax MD was proven to be effective in 86% of patients in 15 to 30 minutes. Earwax MD is designed to be a quick, one time treatment. The majority of patients achieve full clearing in one 15-minute application, but for the super stubborn cases two 15-minute applications may be needed.
Yes, our clinical trial proves that Earwax MD is a safe method to remove earwax. Also, all of the ingredients in Earwax MD are safe and FDA approved.
The only true way to know if your ear is clean is to have a medical professional exam your ear with an otoscope. There are also otoscopes for use at home that can be purchased over the counter. After using Earwax MD, if you notice your ear feels more clear, or your hearing has improved, chances are your ear is clean! However, after using Earwax MD more consistently, your ear will gradually become cleaner and clearer over time.
If Earwax MD does not work after one 15-30-minute treatment, repeat treatment over the next few days. If desired results are not reached, you may need to consult your doctor. Following a professional ear cleaning, use Earwax MD at-home for routine maintenance. Ask your doctor how often you should use Earwax MD (i.e.: twice per month, once per month, once every 3 months, etc.).
As with most cleaning products, this product is designed to be rinsed out of the ear after 15 – 30 minutes. The product helps to break down and allow for easier cleaning of the ear canal with a rinse step. Without a rinse, the broken down wax might not come out of the ear canal and may leave the ear feeling clogged.
There are many variables that could affect how the wax is removed, including types of wax, oils, etc. Some waxes completely dissolve, while other waxes break into pieces. With either scenario, you may need to aggressively flush the ear canal with very warm water multiple times in order to achieve the best results. Depending on the amount of wax in your ear canal, 10 or more flushes may be required to fully flush out the wax.

Absolutely not. Cotton swabs are a primary cause of wax buildup and do very little to actually remove earwax. This is because when the swab is inserted into the ear, it pushes wax further down into the ear canal. This impaction of earwax caused by cotton swabs can lead to a number of different complications, including temporary hearing loss, dizziness, tinnitus and fullness in the ear. It is recommended to use a washcloth to clean the outer part of the ear, and Earwax MD to remove built up earwax in the ear canal.
No! Ear candling is dangerous and has never been proven to be an effective means of clearing your ear canal. Ear candling can burn your tympanic membrane (eardrum) and your ear canal.
