Ear Wax – Self Care

Recurrent blockage due to ear wax;

If your ears are regularly becoming blocked with wax, after clearing the blockage we will usually suggest you use olive oil drops as above around once per week to keep the wax soft and encourage the natural process of wax expulsion.

There may be instances where patients require more advanced treatment (e.g. certain chronic skin conditions, anatomical abnormalities). This would be assessed by your Practice Nurse of GP who can refer to the appropriate service.

We have included a self care leaflet below.
