What is the best treatment for impacted cerumen?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Evidence is insufficient to determine the best treatment for impacted cerumen. Wax softeners are probably effective when used alone or as a precursor to irrigation. Which specific wax softener is the best is uncertain. Ear irrigation also appears to be effective (SOR: C, multiple systematic reviews with heterogeneous results or poorquality studies).
