The ears are usually self-cleaning as the skin cells of the ear drum and ear canal are constantly migrating outwards and most people do not need to interfere with their ears at all. Some people make more wax, or their ears do not clean the wax as effectively as others. In these cases wax can build up inside the ear sometimes causing a blockage sensation. If the wax does not particularly trouble you, then you do not need to treat it. You can use olive oil or sodium bicarbonate drops daily and this will help the ears clean themselves. If you would like further information on ear care please follow the link for our Ear Care Leaflet
Once you have tried different treatments speak to Reception Team to find out if an Ear Syringe Appointment may be appropriate for you.
