A quick one-time treatment
EARWAX MD® uses a new, patent-pending technology designed to clean away earwax impaction from the ear canal. Simply fill the ear canal with drops, wait 15 minutes and then begin the rinsing process.

EARWAX MD FAQS
EARWAX MD sets itself apart from other products by delivering a safe and innovative dual action technology to clean and clear the outer ear canal. It is the only product of its kind and is backed by scientific evidence. In a clinical trial, 86% of patients experienced a complete clearance of earwax in 15-30 minutes. While other products are designed to soften the wax, and are labeled to use twice a day for up to four days, or as directed by a doctor, EARWAX MD is designed to work in 15 to 30 minutes.
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. In some cases, earwax can be overproduce, or pushed down in to the canal by cotton swabs, earbuds, or hearing aids. EARWAX MD helps to keep your ear canal clean and clear.
Every patient is different, but some common symptoms of earwax impaction are:
- Feeling of fullness of the ear
- Temporary hearing loss
- Itchy ear
- overall ear discomfort
EARWAX MD has been shown to alleviate common symptoms in earwax impaction.
EARWAX MD is designed to work quickly. In a clinical trial, EARWAX MD was effective in 86% of people in one 15 - 30 minute treatment. For those with a more stubborn case of earwax impaction, two 15-minute treatments were needed.
Yes, our clinical trial proves that EARWAX MD is a safe method to clean away earwax. EARWAX MD has been dermatologist-tested in a skin sensitivity and irritation evaluation; no adverse effects were reported.
The only true way to know if your ear is clean is to have a medical professional examine you ear with an otoscope. There are otoscopes for at-home use 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.
One thing to keep in mind is that everyone has a different type of earwax, and a different amount of earwax. Because of this, EARWAX MD will work differently for everyone. Follow the directions on the box. Be sure to sufficiently rinse your ear canal. You may need to rinse your ear 10 or more times to fully clear the ear canal. However, 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 cleaning. Ask your doctor for a recommendation on 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 each 15-minute use. The product helps to break down earwax 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 your specific type 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 ignorer 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.
Clinically proven to be safe and effective
The clinical study results of EARWAX MD demonstrated success at cleaning away earwax when used in combination with irrigation. This efficacy translated into a dramatic reduction in symptoms for these patients and should be considered for both in-office and at-home solution for impacted earwax.
The results from laboratory studies using samples of human cerumen (earwax) showed that EARWAX MD rapidly and effectively disintegrated the samples when compared to currently marketed products containing peroxide. The time course for cerumen disintegration demonstrated that EARWAX MD was statistically superior in breaking down cerumen samples, and started working in as short as 5 minutes.
