Ear Syringing

Ear Wax Removal

Ear-Syringing-IrrigationMaking time to see your GP for earwax clearing can be difficult to fit into a busy life but anyone who's suffered earwax blockage understands how uncomfortable and debilitating it can be.  Earwax serves a protective function but can also sometimes cause problems through blockage which leads to temporary hearing reduction and sometimes pain. 

If you produce excessive amounts of earwax and also use cotton buds, earplugs or a hearing aid, this can be compacted into the ear canal and will likely need to be removed.

Our clinic offers sameday doctor appointments for earwax clearing using the latest water-assisted ProPulse system. This is a gentle but effective way of removing earwax, especially after a few days of ear drop use. This system helps to reduce the risk of ear drum perforation and other ear injuries that traditional syringing can cause. It also allows for more complete cleaning of the ear canal. 

This service includes an ear examination, prescription for softening if this is initially required and ear syringing and cleaning. 

Prior to ear syringing, please use olive oil or ear drops for at least two days.

  The cost is only £100 for both ears.
