Ear Wax Drops

Ear wax drops help clear the ear wax build-up. Upon using these drops, the ear wax gets soft and loose, after which it can be removed easily. They contain Carbamide Peroxide as their ingredient, which causes foaming up due to the release of oxygen. It is advised not to use it more than four times a day.
