Ear wax is normal and quantity varies from person to person.
Regular use of olive oil drops (2 to 3 drops in each ear once a week) may reduce the need for syringing. This can be particularly useful for hearing aid and ear plug users.
Avoid using cotton wool buds to clean ears as this may actually push wax deeper into the ear canal and increase the risk of impacted ear wax.
If you have recently [inside the last 4 weeks] consulted a clinician about Ear Wax and then followed the advice given regarding using drops you may book an appointment with Jane, our Healthcare Assistant.
You must have seen a clinician previously to booking in with Jane or the appointment will be a waste of ours and your time and you will need to come back another time to see the clinician and then follow the advice.
