As of the 7th of December 2020, we will be offering Wax Removal at the Delite Chemist in Money Hill Parade, Rickmansworth. Please call 01923 597900 to book your appointment.

It is very common for ears to become blocked with wax, leading to discomfort, pain, and hearing loss. The symptoms of ear wax are impaired hearing, dizziness, ear pain, a plugged or full sensation, and ringing in the ear. You should never attempt to self-clean and always seek professional advice.

We offer microscution wax removal which is a safe, gentle, and effective method of wax removal. Microsuction is a wax removal technique using speculae and magnified loops to allow depth perception and magnification so it becomes easier to look straight into the ear canal and using a very fine sterile suction device at low pressure remove the wax.

Occasionally we may need to use other instruments to remove hard wax or bottle irrigation for soft wax. All of this is explained during your appointment.

Microsuction is the method preferred by medical staff and patients alike for effective removal of wax. Unlike traditional forms of wax removal using ear wax softening drops for a week is not always necessary but we recommend using ‘Earol’ olive oil drops for 2-3 days before treatment.
