We are a team of highly experienced Audiologists with over 20 years’ experience working in the NHS and privately.

Our Qualified Audiologists work alongside the NHS to provide ENT support.

What is earwax?

Ear wax, also known as cerumen, is a natural substance produced in your ears to keep them clean and protect them from infection, dust and skin debris. It is a sticky oily substance that is secreted from the glands in the ear canal. People have different types of earwax, soft or hard, or it can appear in different colours.

Often earwax works it's way out naturally, but in some cases it can build up and block the ears resulting in reduced hearing. Earwax build up can occur in people of all ages. A common problem is the use of headphones/ earplugs which push earwax back into the ears. Also those with hearing aids and narrow ear canals may suffer from a build-up of earwax.

How to safely remove earwax

As Audiologists we advise:

  • Not to use cotton buds or your fingers to remove earwax as this can push the earwax further down the ear canal and push it against the eardrum or cause perforations/ear infections
  • Not to use Hopi ear candles or other self-removing tools as these are ineffective and potentially dangerous.
  • To remember the golden rule: don't put anything smaller then your elbow in your ears!

Always use a professional Audiologist (hearing specialist), who is trained in Earwax Removal and can safely remove earwax using microsuction or other techniques. Earwax build up can cause a dull hearing sensation, a blocked ear feeling, ear pain and further complications for hearing aid users. Our Audiologists use Microsuction Earwax Removal which involves a tiny vacuum to gently ease out the earwax. The Audiologist has full view of the ear canal using microscopic loupes/lights. Microsuction is considered the gold standard for Earwax Removal in the UK.

Microsuction Earwax Removal

Microsuction (or ear syringing) is considered the safest option for Earwax Removal. It uses a small vacuum similar to a syringe to gently remove earwax. The suction power is very low and it's a very quick procedure, which carries low infection risk due to it being a dry procedure. The Audiologist can see what they are doing through the use of loupes/microscopes. 

At Hear Again Ear Care, we take digital consent by asking you to fill out a form prior to each Earwax Removal appointment. The Audiologist will first inspect your ears using an Otoscope, adhering to BSA guidelines. If there is excessive build-up of earwax, the Audiologist will continue to remove the earwax out of your ears. We will ensure you are comfortable before the procedure and promise a great experience. We recommend softening the earwax prior to the appointment with olive oil no more then 3 days before.

Our Testimonials

I had my ear cleared by the lovely audiologist. She was very professional and friendly. I had softened the earwax as per instructed prior to the appointment and could not believe how much earwax came out. It made a huge difference straight away.
Martin Snow
I routinely need my earwax cleared as I wear hearing aids. I was seen by this lovely lady who was very thorough. I’m happy I can use my hearing aids again without the whistling.
Margaret Shaw
I had my ears cleared with microsuction, it is a very quick procedure using a Microsuction machine. The Audiologist showed me the earwax that came out my ears, it was unbelievable.
