Ear Irrigation Posted on 21 Sep 2021

Earwax usually falls out on its own. If it does not and blocks your ear, put 2 to 3 drops of olive or almond oil in your ear twice a day for a few days.

Over 2 weeks lumps of earwax should fall out of your ear, especially at night when you're lying down.

There's no evidence that ear candles or ear vacuums get rid of earwax.

Speak to a pharmacist about earwax build-up. They can give advice and suggest treatments.

If you are still concerned, you can book an appointment with the nurse however we are no longer able to offer ear irrigation.
