Ear Syringing

For removal of excessive ear wax, this service is available from our practice nurses.

Earwax is a normal bodily secretion, which provides a protective film on the skin inside the ear canal. Wax only needs to be removed if it is interfering with hearing or causing local irritation to the ear canal. The purpose of irrigating an ear is to clear the external auditory canal.

Ear syringing is most effective and provides the best results if you plan ahead and soften the ear wax prior to the procedure. This can be done with clean olive oil or pharmacy  preparations such as “cerumol” for a few days prior to your appointment.

If you have any questions about this procedure please discuss them with a practice nurse. Bookings should be made through reception.
