“There are a number of over-the-counter options for removing earwax at home. For the most part, we advise not to do any of them. People use Q-tips. Q-tips are fine if you are just trying to clean the outside of the ear. The second you get that Q-tip into the ear canal, you are potentially causing a problem.”
