Looking for Ear Wax Removal in Bebington and The Wirral?
Looking after your hearing is vital; there are varying factors that can affect your ear health. If you are experiencing symptoms such as hearing loss and dizziness, you may be suffering from an excessive ear wax build-up. However, there’s no need to worry – The Pharmacy Bebington are here for you, with our Private Ear Wax Removal service.
What causes a build-up of ear wax?
A build-up of ear wax may occur for a number of reasons; these include:
– A natural tendency to have more wax in your ears.
– Narrow or hairy ear canals.
– Hearing aids, earplugs and other objects inserted into the ear, as they can push wax further inwards.
– Ageing, as wax gets harder and finds it more difficult to fall out as you get older.
How do I know if I have an excessive build-up of ear wax?
Our ear health can be impacted by a variety of environmental factors; a build-up of wax is the most common one. Usually, an excessive ear wax build-up is characterised by the following symptoms:
– Hearing difficulties
– An ear infection
You can find further guidance regarding symptoms on the NHS website.
How can I treat an ear wax build-up?
Normally, ear wax falls out of its own accord. However, when it is blocking your ears, there are some methods that you can try to help ease your discomfort. These include putting 2-3 drops of almond oil in your ear twice a day, for a few days. Over the course of 2 weeks, lumps of ear wax should fall out of your ear. This is especially likely to happen at night, when you are lying down.
Please note: You should not use your fingers, or objects such as cotton buds, to remove ear wax. This will be counterproductive, as it will actually push it in and make it worse. Moreover, there is no evidence that methods such as ear vacuums or candles effectively remove ear wax.
How can we help you with Ear Wax Removal in Bebington and The Wirral?
It is estimated that around 3.9% of the UK population need ear wax management services. However, in many cases, NHS appointment waiting times can range from 12-16 weeks; this means that the majority of patients neglect their ear health, allowing their conditions to worsen. This is largely due to a lack of awareness that your local pharmacists are in fact equipped to ease your ear-related discomfort.
Here at The Pharmacy, your health and wellbeing is our top priority. That is why we have chosen to provide accessible Ear Wax Removal in partnership with TympaHealth.
PRICE: Free Consultation + £40 for one ear, £50 for both ears
Your ear health diagnosis
Your appointment will last approximately 30 minutes; it will be carried out by one of our highly-trained clinicians. Following the removal of some of the wax, tests will be conducted in order to determine any potential hearing issues. If any issues are identified, you will be referred for further treatment. However, in the majority of cases, it is simply an excessive build-up of ear wax causing your discomfort.
Following your diagnosis, we will then remove the excess ear wax using Microsuction. Ear Microsuction is the safest, most efficient method of ear wax removal. Moreover, the process will be painless, as it merely involves inserting a low-pressure suction probe into the ear.
