Excessive earwax can block your ear canal and cause hearing problems. Debrox is a non-prescription liquid ear medication that you can use to safely remove earwax build-up. When placed in the ear, the drops begin foaming upon contact. This bubbling action softens earwax and allows it to drain naturally from the ear.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Wash your hands with soap and dry them thoroughly.

  2. 2

    Tilt the ear in which you are going to apply the drops upward.

  3. 3

    Use the included dropper to place five to 10 drops of Debrox into your ear.

  4. 4

    Keep the drops in your ear for several minutes. Keep your head tilted up, or place a cotton ball in your ear to prevent the drops from draining prematurely.

  5. 5

    Place a clean tissue over your ear and tilt your head downward to drain the drops and earwax from your ear.

Tips and warnings

  • You can gently flush the ear with warm water to remove any remaining earwax.
  • Debrox can be used twice a day for up to four days. If you still have excessive or hard-to-remove earwax after four days, consult your doctor.
  • It's normal to hear a faint bubbling or crackling noise while the medicine is in your ear.
  • Do not let the tip of the dropper touch your ear canal; it could contaminate the rest of the medication.
