How to treat earwax buildup in a safe way?

Olive oil or almond oil ear drops can be used for 3–5 days to soften the earwax and help it come out on its own. You can pick up these ear drops from most pharmacies. Use two to three drops in each ear three to four times a day, or follow the directions on the packaging and information leaflet.

If the oil drops don’t get rid of the earwax buildup, speak to your local pharmacy team about getting medical ear drops that dissolve the earwax.

Some people have trouble getting rid of earwax buildup with ear drops. In such cases, it might be possible to get rid of the earwax with a controlled medical procedure such as microsuction or irrigation. These procedures should only be carried bout by trained professionals who use special tools to get rid of earwax.

You should never insert cotton buds or other objects to dig out any wax. This can push the wax deeper inside, as well as risk damaging the ear canal and the ear drum.

Microsuction earwax removal is a safe and effective method for removing cerumen (earwax). It involves using a gentle suction device to remove earwax while causing the least amount of discomfort. A trained professional will perform the procedure, using a microscope to visualise the ear canal and earwax, and then using a suction device to gently remove the earwax.

How to prepare for your microsuction earwax removal appointment?

It is recommended that you use olive oil ear drops or spray for 5-7 days prior to your earwax removal appointment. This helps with soften the earwax so that it can be easily removed through microsuction.

If you haven’t used the olive oil ear drops, it might not be possible to remove all the earwax in a single appointment. You will be asked to book and pay for a second appointment to remove the remaining earwax. It is therefore important that you use the olive oil ear drops or spray before 5-7 days before your appointment. You can get the olive oil ear drops from a local pharmacy.
