Put the Q-tip down! Leave the earwax in your ear to do its job. The glands in your ear canal produce this substance, also known as cerumen, to protect your ears. Let’s review the role earwax plays in your ear.
Some people produce more earwax than others; this can be related to genetics, diet, and certain medications. In this case, Debrox is recommended to assist in the removal processes and slow the earwax build up. Debrox acts to liquify the cerumen for easier removal, whether the removal is naturally or from a medical professional. If your ear produces too much wax resulting your ear being occluded, see your ENT specialist for proper removal. Schedule your appointment at the Ear, Nose, and Throat Center today. Call 847-685-1000

The doctor and the staff were all nice and professional. I was seen within the first five minutes of showing up. I got quality care and review of my concerns.
Actually takes the time to talk to you and figure out your concerns.
