Let’s Hear More About that Earigator™
The Earigator™ was designed by an otologist, a physician with extensive training on how to diagnose and treat common ear ailments. It’s used to clean out the outer ear canal of any buildup and is unique because it’s the patented combination of an otoscope and ear irrigation.
An otoscope is the tool that doctors use to look inside your ears. It lights up and magnifies your ear canal allowing your doctor to get a good look. Ear irrigation is a technique used by doctors to clean out cerumen buildup from your ears. This process steadily pumps water into your ear via a handheld nozzle to flush out your ear canal.
Did You Just Say Cerumen?
Ah, yes. Cerumen is the medical term for earwax. Certainly, you’ve heard of earwax, but few of us know what it really is. Ear wax or cerumen is a waxy material produced by glands in the skin of the outer ear canal. It exists to clean and lubricate the ears, as well as protect them from bacteria, fungi, dirt, insects, and water.
Our bodies naturally clean out this earwax over time. (Cleveland Clinic) The skin on the inside of the ear canal slowly grows from the inside out over time. When the earwax hitching a ride on the older skin reaches the outside of your ear, it dries and flakes off. The movement of your jaw bones also helps your body move the earwax along.
Occasionally, the cerumen can cause blockage in your ear canal when your body produces it faster than it can remove it. The feeling of a cerumen blockage is not only uncomfortable; it can also result in earaches, dizziness, or in extreme cases, hearing loss. That’s why it’s important to have your ears cleaned out periodically.
