Is the Otowick effective?

This is just a general question – I suffer from excessive ear wax and although I’ve been advised not to use Q-tips, I find myself using them quite a lot. Is the Otowick effective? And, would you recommend any other methods?

Hi there,

Thanks for your question.

Otowick is a special tiny sponge that is inserted into the ear canal when it is swollen. This is extremely effective because it can deliver the antibiotic medicine deeper within the canal and will hold it where it can work for longer. Many patients that have undergone this treatment find significant improvement of swelling in just a few days.
