We have created a self-help guide that may help you with your ear symptoms.

What you can do to manage the problem?

  • Using ear drops(almond or olive oil) should be used 2- 3 times daily for 14 days.

Alternatively

  • There are a number of over the counter kits available from pharmacies. These can include a wax softener as drops and a small bulb syringe to enable you to remove the wax from your ear canals yourself. Always follow the instructions provided with the kit.

Research shows that bulb syringing is effective and acceptable to patients and could significantly reduce the use of NHS resources.
