Deafness

 

This may be due to accumulation of wax in the ears, to cold, to changes in the internal cavity of the ear, or to affection of the nerve of hearing.

General Treatment.-When there is wax in the ear it must be removed. This should never be attempted with hair-pins or anything of the kind. Warm sweet-oil should be dropped into the ear every night for two or three nights, and then the ear should be syringed out with warm water, very gently, as permanent harm may be easily done if violence is used. For deafness, when due to other causes, medicines will be required. When accompanied by inflammation or earache, see under EARS.
