How to Use the Ear Syringe From DIYHappy?
The excessive earwax won’t go away on its own and also you should not perform ear irrigation in the comfort of your own home. It is better to leave it to the experienced master called the doctor.
The doctor will perform ear irrigation intervention with an syringe and it will not hurt or harm you. It is a common technique done on many patients. First, he or she will look through the otoscope to make sure if you need the procedure. If it’s needed the procedure can be done in the “doctors’ room”. The doctor will use a tool called syringe. With a ear syringe, the liquid (water and saline mixture) will be pressured inside of an ear canal. Imagine like flushing a toilet. It is exactly how it is going to happen.
Maybe at this moment, a patient feels a bit uncomfortable tilting the head on one side with something dripping out of the ear. That is why the soft tissue can be placed directly under the ear.
Risks and Side Effect
The eardrum can be damaged with ear irrigation. But this only happens if too much pressure was made during the procedure. Rupture of an eardrum can also happen if you are sick while procedure or you have a weak immune system.
That is why you shouldn’t go to the doctor if you are sick or if you have an ear infection.
Anyway, the doctor will know exactly what to do with you once an otoscopic bright light will shine in your ear hole.
