There is an innovative, new way for adults to easily remove earwax. An ear surgeon invented the Ototek Loop after seeing common injuries in patients who tried to clear their ears with everything from car keys to paper clips. It's similar to the wax removal tools used by doctors, but this one has a built-in safety guard to prevent the looped tip from damaging the eardrum.
The device retails for $4.99 and is available at select pharmacies nationwide, but keep it away from kids. The Ototek Loop is not recommended for anyone under the age of 16.
Here in Lubbock, the Ototek is available at Walgreens and Wal-Mart.
