Water Works for Cerumen Impaction

doi: 10.1097/01.EEM.0000655056.14782.19

    Editor:

    If you don't have the time to obtain and instill Colace into an ear canal, as Michelle Lin, MD, recommended (“Colace for Ear Cerumen,” EMN. 2019;41[12]:5; http://bit.ly/3831uSz), you only need to use body temperature water with repeated high-jet lavage to soften and remove a cerumen impaction. It works every time.
