Amazing product that is easy enough for a child to use
on August 14, 2012
My son was having issues with ear wax. We took him to a doctor who said he couldn't even see the eardrums in either ear, they were so packed with hard wax! Doctor tried using a version of this product but didn't try but more than a couple of squirts per ear, then gave up. He told us to go home and use mineral oil to soften the wax. Upon getting home, I looked up the device he used to try to get the ears cleaned and found the Rhino ear wash system. I ordered this version because it said you could use it on yourself, and with my son's ongoing ear issues, I wanted him to be able to learn to take of it himself.
We did use mineral oil a couple of times before the Rhino arrived, but the moment it arrived we tried it. After the first couple of squirts, we were getting flakes of ear wax. Suddenly, I saw something bigger in the ear. A squirt later and it was like the scene in the Star Trek movie where the earwig crawls out of Chekhov's ear! The glob was half the size of the tip of my little finger. It was disgusting, but exciting at the same time. Finally! Out came the source of all my son's hearing problems! We tried cleaning the other ear and got a couple of much smaller globs along with lots of flakes of wax. The difference in his hearing was immediately noticeable for him. We are going to encourage him to use it himself at least monthly.
I would HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone with waxy ear issues. It truly does work. It is incredibly simple to use and gets amazing results.
