Do I need to soften the wax?
We offer appointments to assess the wax in your ears free of charge prior to booking the ear wax removal. We can advise if the wax can be removed immediately or requires Earol to soften it. Do not use the softeners for too long as this may lead to the wax and oil mix settling close to the eardrum making it much harder to remove.
Occasionally it is necessary to arrange a free revisit if all the wax cannot be removed during the first appointment . This second visit must be within 14 days and if further loosening of the wax is required you will be informed by the audiologist.
Olive oil can sometimes be used to loosen the wax in your ear.Your ears might feel more blocked up after using olive oil and might reduce your hearing – this is because the wax will soak up the oil.
If you wear hearing aids, avoid wearing them after you put olive oil in your ears as you could damage your hearing aids
If you experience a foul taste after using olive oil, stop using it as this might be a sign that there is a hole in your eardrum. If this happens, get in touch with your GP and let us know.
For some people, olive oil use might cause some mild discomfort.
