Hello, this is right up my alley. I have a profound hearing loss and also tinnitus. I have my ears checked by my ENT doctor every 4 or 5 months. I have very little wax but very dry ear canals. He told me over a year ago to use mineral oil in my ear canals on a regular basis. Do not use a Q Tip.
Buy a dropper and a bottle of mineral oil at the drugstore and put a few drops in each ear...once a day is enough. It's like moisturizer and doesn't build up. You will notice a difference in your hearing. You can use olive oil in a pinch.
Let the mineral oil sink into the canal and keep your head tilted for a few seconds.
This had nothing to do with tinnitus.
I am giving you this advice based on my Doctor's directions. I do this in both ears several times a week...usually at night when I remove my hearing aids .
Remember NO Q Tips...it will only push any debris or wax further into the canal.
