When the condition is chronic a syringe must be used to getinto the deep parts of the ear and the best for this purpose is one madeentirely of soft rubber with a long flexible point that can be pushed intothe meatus without any great danger of injuring the canal; the flexiblepoint adapts itself to the turns of the external ear canal, and by usingapplications of warm water injected into the meatus the latter can bethoroughly cleansed of accumulated cerumen, crusts, etc. The canal isthen dried with absorbent cotton introduced into the ear on the end of asmall pair of forceps.
