wax they couldn't even get it out
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: Any time I can be of service!!
jill_z_q: :(
dragonladyw2001: I'm not sure. It might be mineral oil. I guess they
both could work.
Shannon: I feel for you Jill... :-(
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: Jill, did they give you any ear wax
dragonladyw2001: If they didn't, you could use the olive oil for
your cauliflower ear.
marlea_anderson: there is nothing more miserable than an ear ache or
jill_z_q: Debrox?
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: You can get some at the drugstore
Shannon: I was told at the doctor, though, that sometimes those oils
can make the wax gunk up worse and make it harder to come out
dragonladyw2001: Yep, earaches and toothaches. Yuck.
alix: picked up good sinushint yesterday ,,, put one drop of
melaleuca (tea tree oil) in you bottle of saline spray ... works
like a charm
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: If it's really impacted though a Dr. or
murse should irrigate the ear canal
DTIntermart: Ear aches are murder....
miss_meme_30: wanna know what my doc says?
miss_meme_30: use peroxide
jill_z_q: I've done peroxide
miss_meme_30: 2 drops in each ear

electron_forge: me too
DTIntermart: Warm olivoil helps too softens the gunk & soorths the
miss_meme_30: eats the wax
Shannon: a warm compress and as warm water syringed into the ear is
what the dr told me :-)
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: Right Shannon
miss_meme_30: then the warm water
DTIntermart: Why no peroxide? I do that all the time is it dangeros
DTIntermart: ?
miss_meme_30: just do the warm water til the pain subsides first is
what i do
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: But you must be careful using the warm
water in a syringe
jill_z_q: olive oil sounds soothing after while peroxide will irriate
jill_z_q: My ear is so mess up they can't even see the ear drum
miss_meme_30: i use a baby dropper for the drops
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: I'll come over and clean your bad ear Jil
electron_forge: wow that's love
jill_z_q: I'm there
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: There's a product called Sweet Oil we got
as kids
dragonladyw2001: Have you tried ear candeling?
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: Loooong time ago
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: in a blue bottle.
miss_meme_30: hey that sweet oil worked
jill_z_q: I went to asprin, to 600 mg of motrin and now I'm on
vicodin that is how bad the pain is LOL
Shannon: yes, Sharon, sweet oil and mineral oil are the same thing,
I believe
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: Yes, it worked
jill_z_q: no I haven't tried that was thinking of that you know
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: Wonder if you can still get it?
electron_forge: virgin clay?
jill_z_q: ooh virgin clay
dragonladyw2001: Wow! NJ is opening a new package of clay.
Shannon: yes, the pharmacist should be able to point it out
electron_forge: and I dread conditioning the 2oz bars!
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: Yes, I think they just put a sweet scent
in the mineral oil
nancy: emergency room time dont want that eardrum to
jill_z_q: I was there last night
Shannon: LOL Douglas, have you tried a food processor?
jill_z_q: they weren't very helpful
electron_forge: yes but then the pasta machine, just not my fav part
of the deal
jill_z_q: this meaning doc lady was sticking metal objects in my ear
to clean it out
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: Jill do you have a regular Dr.??
nancy: go need some more help..
electron_forge: I'm a bit impatient
jill_z_q: No

perceptionsnpc: hey all
Shannon: just for the record, NJ is placing the cut out poinsettias
on a black sheet
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: Well, you need to get something to soften
the ear wax
jill_z_q: I don't think its "infected" just that I got so much wax?
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: Didn't they suggest anything??
jill_z_q: told me get some debrox
jill_z_q: and did 4 times a day at night rise with warm water
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: Get an ear syringe at drugstore
minimadness423 joined the room
Shannon: when mine get like that, a heating pad really helps Jill :-)
dragonladyw2001: Jill, after you get it solved, you might try
cleaning with a Q-til soaked in baby oil on a regular basis. That'll
keep the build-up down.
jill_z_q: and they got me some antibotics
Shargoose=Sharon V in TN: Fill with warm water
alix: They should have called a specialist.
dragonladyw2001: Q-tip.
jill_z_q: no q-tips that what started this in teh first place
