Ear Syringing

What is ear syringing?

At some time, most people are affected by a build up of ear wax. This may not usually be a sign of ill health, but it can greatly impact on your daily activities and your general sense of wellbeing.

At the The Medical we offer a quick, convenient ear syringing service. Ear syringing works by pulsing water into the ear to flush out the wax. Our expert GPs and nurses have a wealth are hugely experienced and very good at clearing any blockages.

What can cause wax build-up?

If you produce excessive amounts of earwax and also use cotton buds, earplugs or a hearing aid, then wax can become compacted into the ear canal. That can be very uncomfortable and frustrating.

If your ears are blocked with wax, you may experience muffled hearing and persistent ringing. Do not try poking your ear yourself, because you might make it worse by pushing the wax further into the ear canal.

What are signs of wax build-up? Do I need to get ear syringing?

There are several symptoms which may be caused by a build-up in ear wax. These include:

  • Earache
  • Difficulty hearing
  • Itchiness
  • Dizziness
  • An ear infection
  • Sounds such as high-pitched tones coming from inside the ear (tinnitus)

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact us as soon as possible so we can guide you to the right treatment.


Do I need to do anything before my appointment?

Before you come for your appointment, you need to use olive oil ear drops to soften the wax at least two times a day for two weeks. This will make it easier to remove the wax build-up.
