The Story Behind Elephant Ear Washer
This ear irrigation system, manufactured by the company Doctor Easy, which has a long history of making home use medical products, was invented by a Floridian general practitioner MD and has been sold since 1997. The company states that it is a professional-level tool for ear hygiene and earwax removal, comparable to the equipment used in medical offices.
Earwax is a waxy substance that our body produces to protect our ears from infection, repel water and lubricate the skin in our ear canal. Generally, we do not need to clean our ears, as this is a self-regulating process and our body naturally expels the wax. Some people, however, produce more earwax than others and the excess wax can build up and block the ear canal, which can lead to hearing difficulties, itching, earaches and infections. If the problems are severe, a visit to the doctor’s office is necessary, but in mild cases you can tackle the problem by yourself in the comfort of your home.
