I have the same problem. I started using Debrox and it works reasonably well.

What I was thinking. Why so much ear wax? It isn't at all typical.

I allow peroxide to boil and bubble until it stops and then flush with tepid water form a bulb syringe. Son and I get a lot of thick wax buildup.

My doctor recommends putting "Sweet Oil" in your ear to soften the wax. Available at any drug store.

Some people just make a lot of wax. Itís usually hereditary. My sister gave me an ear wax removal system that I use couple times a week. I havenít had to have the doctors flush my ears in a while.

Oh well it didn't start till a few years ago, when I started working factory jobs. Wearing ear plugs caused it, but I never had problems before that.

You should never use q-tips in your ear. That just pushes the wax in more and can puncture your eardrum.

Basically I get the build up from working in factory jobs where you have to wear ear plugs, and wearing them causes wax build up every few weeks. So I don't think the doc has any other advice, than get a new line of work I think.
I wear ear plugs every night because my late husband used to snore and I just got used to the quietness. I haven't had any wax build-up that I'm aware of (hopefully).
