My ears are blocked with wax and drops haven't helped. I don't want to go to
the doctor because my mom says he may have to use a syringe to get rid of the wax.
I'm scared of needles! Is there anything I can do? – Danilee*
Don't worry! Not all syringes have needles. The type of syringe
your doc will use to clear ear wax has a hole at the end instead of a needle. Your
doctor or nurse will use it to squirt warm water into your ear as a way to flush out
This simple, painless procedure is called ear irrigation. Afterward, you'll be
able to hear better and you'll be a lot more comfortable. So it's worth making that
trip to the doctor!
