Very true. If you are on Medicare, you are entitled to two cleanings a year. Makes a big difference.

Back when I was a kid I had a big problem with wax buildup in my ears. My aunt (who was an RN) used to lay me on her lap and pour hydrogen peroxide in my ears and the worst thing about it was the tickling sensation as it loosened up the wax. I never had to go to the doctor after that.
This was back in the '60s and it still works fine but now I use the bulb to vacuumm out the wax that's dislodged and viola!, better hearing.
All the best,
I was told by a nurse that running warm water into your ears from a decent shower head is (often) all you need to keep the canal free of excess wax.
i once had one ear get completely clogged up and had to go to the ER for treatment. SO i can report now that i have never had to go back again. It was
a pretty frightening experience at the time.
