After Care advice following Ear Wax Removal

  • INFECTION
    Micro suction will remove the fungal debris, however it will not remove the infection.

  • KEEP EARS DRY
    Please try to keep ear canals dry for the inital few days after the procedure.
    This will reduce the risk of infection
  • SETTLING DOWN TIME
    After ears have been impacted with wax or debris for a period of time it takes a week or so for things to settle down.
    It can be normal to feel “blocked”.
    If this feeling continues beyond a week or so it may be worth starting steam inhalation to clear the eustachian tube.

  • ROUTINE EAR CARE
    The ear has self-cleaning properties. Wax is normal and has protective qualities.
    Do not use cotton buds
    Use of a small amount of Olive oil or Earol once or twice a month lubricates the ear canal.
