What is ear wax and why do our ears block?

Ear wax is a natural substance that helps to protect the ear by trapping dirt and dust and moisturising the skin of the ear canal. Trouble starts when there is an excess  of ear wax or it becomes compacted.  When this happens you may experience reduced hearing, pain, itchiness, dizziness and/or ringing in the ears.


 Blocked ears can happen to anyone at any age  and some of the most common causes are small ear canals, wearing of ear plugs or head phones and using cotton buds. Hearing aid users often experience blocked ears as the wax can not escape past the hearing aid and so it gets stuck.


Ear wax removal using irrigation (syringing) or microsuction by a trained professional is recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence as a safe and effective method of ear wax removal.  We care for patients from 4 years old to 104 and everyone in between.

How to prepare your ears 

There are many products on the market for softening ear wax but olive oil is still the best. It is cheap, readily available, very effective and gentle to the delicate skin in the ear canal.

To get the best results apply for 3 days before syringing as follows:

  •  Tilt your head to one side and gently pull the outer ear back and upwards.
  • Drop two or three drops of olive oil into the ear canal.  Do not warm the oil, room temperature is fine. 
  • Keep your head tilted for a few minutes to allow the oil to soak in. Then straighten up and wipe away any excess oil that comes out of your ear. Do not use cotton wool as this soaks up the olive oil rather than letting it soak into the ear wax. 
  • Repeat on the other side even if you think only one ear is blocked. 



A comprehensive check of your ears and symptoms is included in every appointment  to discuss the suitability of ear wax removal. Treatment should only be carried out on ears that are totally blocked with wax and with no  contra-indications such as a previous perforated ear drum.

If earwax removal is not required or suitable a charge of £10 at the clinic or £30 for mobile appointments will be charged.  


Reviews & Recommendations 

This is my husbands review, he is a retired GP. We called Danielle this morning and she came this evening. Danielle was pleasant, friendly, efficient, gentle and most professional. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.

Thank you Danielle. 

Danielle came to see my 5yr old son today. She was fantastic at explaining what she was going to do and made it fun and like a game for him. She let him have a go with the equipment which made him completely at ease. I highly recommend Danielle to anyone of all ages she is fantastic. 

So after finding out my surgery don't do ear syringing any more I was elated to find Danielle and what an angel. I had my ears syringed today at her clinic and I would highly recommend her. Well worth the money and a whole lot cheaper than the bigger companies that now do it.
