Fairview Pharmacy

Earwax Removal Service


Cerumen, commonly known as ear wax, is present in everyone. It traps dust/dirt and offers protection against ear infections. Although ear wax usually falls out on its own, when it builds up and blocks your ears, it’s time for a superhero pharmacist to help! At Fairview Pharmacy, we provide an effective ear wax removal service for the people of London.


Signs Of Excess Earwax

Symptoms of earwax build-up include:

– Hearing loss
– Earache or blocked ears
– Ringing or buzzing in your ears (tinnitus)
– Vertigo (feeling dizzy and sick)

If you have ear wax build-up, visit our Pharmacy for help. Our pharmacist will not only advise but also recommend the best treatment to clear earwax. They may propose either the use of medicines or microsuction to remove the wax. However, this will depend on the level of build-up.

If you have a hole in your eardrum (a perforated eardrum), do not use drops.

Consequently, you can consult with your GP if:

– You still have symptoms after 5 days
– Your ear is badly blocked and you have hearing problems since you can get an infection if it has not cleared

Not All GP Practices Perform Earwax Removal Services In Middlesex.

Some can:

– Flush the wax out with water (ear irrigation/syringing)
– Suck the wax out (microsuction)

These treatments are normally painless. Therefore, you might have to pay to have them done privately.


What is Microsuction?


Microsuction is the safest and most effective way to remove excessive ear wax. It is the process of removing wax from the ears by using a small suction tube and probe to gently loosen and remove any excess wax in the ear which may be causing hearing loss or discomfort.

What Causes Ear wax Build-Up?

Excess ear wax can occur if:

– Your ear canal is narrow or damaged
– You have a skin problem that affects your scalp or around your ear
– You have excess hair in your ear canals
– Your ear canals have inflammation (otitis externa or “swimmer’s ear”)

Prevent Ear Wax Build-Up And Ear Wax Removal

You cannot stop the production of earwax since it’s there to protect your ears from dust and germs.

Nevertheless, continuous use of olive oil ear drops for several days can soften the wax. As a result, the excess wax will fall out on its own, hence preventing blocking.
