DERBY, U.K. - Feb. 28, 2022 - PRLog -- Earwax, while arguably unpleasant, is essential in keeping our ears clean. Similar to how our noses produce (sometimes lots of) mucus, earwax is used for flushing out bacteria and other foreign bodies that may cause an infection. If an infection does occur, then you'll likely experience pain, discomfort and puss, so it's best to clear the impaction as soon as possible.

If you're struggling with ear wax impaction, here are some top tips to consider:

1. Never stick anything into your ear

As tempting as it might be, don't ever poke and prod your inner ear with anything, not even a soft cotton bud. Unless you're a trained medical professional, there's a good chance that you will damage your highly fragile eardrum, which could result in you damaging your hearing permanently.

2. Add a few drops of olive oil twice a day

Lay on your side with the blocked ear towards the ceiling. Add two drops of olive oil into your ear canal and wait for it to soak in, typically staying in this position for at least 10 minutes. The oil will help soften any hardened and impacted earwax, making it easier to remove.

3. Flush gently with clean water and a syringe

It can take a few days of regular oil drops before the wax is softened enough for removal. After about three days of oil treatment, sanitise a syringe using water and some baby bottle sterilisation liquid. Fill the syringe with clean water, point the tip into your affected ear canal, and gently but firmly squirt in the water to flush out the (hopefully) softened wax. If all has gone well, then you'll be greeted with the ability to hear again.

4. Visit a professional. Our bank of nurses are highly qualified, some are ex-NHS nurses and the others have experience in the private medical sector, so you're on safe hands.
