Olive oil is a home remedy as old as time, but that doesn't mean it's a good ear cleaner!
Earwax is normally present in the ear in order to protect the inner ear from bacteria and foreign objects such as dust or debris. Earwax also protects the ear from water-causing infections. Nevertheless, excessive or impacted earwax can harm the ear causing pain and hearing loss.
According to NetDoctor, although olive oil softens the earwax, the wax sludge that results does more harm than good.
So why have we grown up thinking that olive oil is the best answer to our earwax problems?
General practitioners have been telling patients for years to put olive oil in their ears to soften the wax. After a few weeks, the general practitioner would then perform an ear syringing if there was a hearing problem due to the excessive wax.
But from now on, let's keep our olive oil in the kitchen and OUT of our ears!
OLIVE OIL MUST GO!
After the greasy, oily mess olive oil makes when we attempt to place it into our ears- I promise you, it was a waste of laundry detergent used on our pillows, cushions, and pajamas.
On one hand, the olive oil that is inside of your ear has now loosened the wax BUT, on the other hand, the oil has caused your wax to loosen and now it has spread out to fill the more narrow confines of your ear canal.
This olive oil application has now suffocated your ear and can be drowning out the sound.
For those that think olive oil is the end of the treatment, you are suffering the most. General practitioners recommend that you come back in a few weeks to experience the joy of having your earwax water blasted out.
However, those weeks of waiting for the appointment can be among the most uncomfortable and sound-deprived we have ever experienced!
