Ear irrigation is a painless routine procedure for removing earwax. Ear irrigation (syringing) is carried out by using an electronic irrigator. The tip of the irrigator is inserted into the entrance of the ear and a warm flow of water enters helping to flush out the wax. This procedure works best when earwax is soft so it is important to follow any advice given prior to your appointment.

Before attending your appointment 2-3 drops of Olive Oil must be applied to one or both ears if required at least three to four times daily for at least 5-7 days to help soften and loosen the wax prior to irrigation. The best way to apply this is by resting the side of your head on a pillow inserting the drops and lay for a few minutes so the Olive Oil penetrates the hardened wax. Wipe any excess oil away with a tissue and refrain from using cotton wool as this will soak the oil up. Repeat on the other side should both ears require irrigation. Olive Oil can be obtained over the counter from your local pharmacy. If you require more information then please do not hesitate to contact our Nurse prior to your appointment.
Appointments cost £40 for one or both ears.
It is advised to see a qualified professional for earwax removal but if you do still want to try and remove earwax at home it is important to do so safely.
