What is Earwax?
Ear wax is made up of several components which are secreted from sweat glands, sebaceous, and ceruminous glands in the outer two thirds of the ear canal. The secretion of this often waxy, sticky discharge is known as earwax. It is made up of a combination of squamous and keratin which makes up 60% of its composition with the remainder of its components being alcohols cholesterols and fatty acids. You rarely find this type of secretion in the back of the ear canal unless it has been pushed back with a cotton bud, excessive use of drops, or a finger from experience.

We would recommend olive oil drops for 1-2 days or Otex but this is dependant very much on an individual to individual basis
We also provide water irrigation for the ears. For some patients microsuction is not always stable especially when dealing with particularly soft wax as a consequence of over use of drops. In such cases we use the irrigation method which involves the controlled pressure of water at body temperature in the ear in order to remove stubborn deposits of wax which deposit themselves on th eardrum. Your clinician will determine which would be the better procedure on the day of the appointment
Ear wax removal drops usually peroxide based including name brands like Otex and Sodium bicarbonate drops are great for breaking down hard abrasive wax in the ear ready for ear wax removal. In some instances they can break down wax sufficiently to the extent were by earwax removal may not be required as the wax has sufficiently dissolved, however we find that this in most cases depends on the size of the cavity. We usually deal with a lot of cases were by the wax has turned in to a semi liquid which slides down the ear canal and settles on the drum completely sealing the canal. and causing complete deafness, our advise is to use drops for 2-3 days before coming in for an earwax removal
We always advice a qualified Audiologist or a practitioner nurse with experience in ear nose and throat. Any other practitioner with a background not in Audiology simply wont have the experience to deal with complex difficult cases and you usually want a audiologist with 100’s of ear wax removal procedures under their belt. We say this because unfortunately due to the unregulated nature of the training you could potentially be having a invasive procedure undertaken by a non audiologist with no previous experience in audiological medicine.
