The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation has published the Plain Language Summary: Earwax (Cerumen Impaction). This document gives directions and explains many concepts related to the management of the ear wax in the ear duct.

The summary applies to patients older than 6 months with a clinical diagnosis of earwax impaction and is based on the 2017 update of the Clinical Practice Guideline: Earwax (Cerumen Impaction).

By reading this guideline and the good hygienic practice, three simple good behaviors can be deduced, avoid the use of ear candling or ear coning for heal or prevent the CUE occlusion, to avoid the cotton swabs in order to remove cerumen inside the ear duct and to use ear plugs for children who use to swim.
