Ear War Build Up
For wax build up we would recommend over the counter remedies such as olive oil drops making sure you follow the included instructions and provided that you have had no history of ear surgery or perforated ear drums. We do not provide a wax removal service.
Large drops in hearing, Ear Infections and other ear related medical issues
During this period if you suffer from a large and sudden drop in hearing which is not related to wax we strongly urge you to contact your GP for a consultation. The same is true if you develop an ear infection or any other ear related medical issues.
