Ear Wax Removal

Ear wax is naturally produced inside your ears and is an essential component in maintaining a healthy ear canal. It usually passes out of the ears harmlessly, but sometimes too much can build up and block the ears.

The most common symptom is hearing loss, but it can also lead to discomfort, earache, itchiness, tinnitus (ringing sensation) or dizziness.

A build-up of ear wax is a common problem and can sometimes be treated by the appropriate use of the ear drops. However, advice should be sought before using and you should never use a cotton bud inside the ear. Where the build up of wax has become significant and hardened and removal is required.



Safe, private clinic

Keeping you and others safe is our priority. Please do not come to your appointment if you have any symptoms (a raised temperature, cough or change in taste or smell). We may take your temperature when you arrive and provide you with a mask if you do not have one.


Trained healthcare professionals

Your ear health check and wax removal is undertaken by a trained healthcare professional using specialist equipment which is validated for clinical use. The procedure will be explained to you, a number of questions asked to ensure that it is safe to proceed, and your results interpreted and discussed with you.


The appointment

We look into your ears using a special camera to check the health of your ears. If there is wax detected requiring removal, then we use a micro-suction procedure. If there is no wax to remove then only a £20 consultation fee is payable. Hardened wax may require additional softening and a new removal appointment made after about one week.

More about ear wax to build up and what can help?

Symptoms of earwax build-up include:

  • hearing loss
  • earache or a feeling that your ears are blocked
  • ringing or buzzing in your ears (tinnitus)
  • vertigo (feeling dizzy and sick)

Some people regularly get blocked ears because they naturally produce a lot of earwax.

Other factors that can increase the risk of too much earwax include:

  • producing naturally hard or dry earwax
  • having narrow or hairy ear canals (the tube between the opening of the ear and the eardrum)
  • being elderly, as earwax becomes drier with age
  • bony growths in the outer part of the ear canal

Earwax can also block your ear if you frequently insert objects into your ear canal, such as cotton buds, ear plugs or hearing aids.
