From time to time, wax build-up can block the ear canal to cause dulled hearing or discomfort.
If you think you have build up of wax in your ear please instil some olive oil drops or wax softener for 3 days prior to ear syringing as it will make the procedure easier and more effective.
Inform our doctors if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: pain, inflammation, dizziness, vertigo, discharge or hearing loss. These may be caused by an infection and will need further examination.
