do you actually have wax rather than other things that might limit your hearing?

Cotton buds, and hair grips only.

Free on the NHS



I paid £55 and no, itdidn't hurt. I don't think it's as good as syringing. Three months after I had it done I went for a check up with my hearing aids, the audiologist looked in my ears and told me they needed cleaning. I refused to have it done again so soon after.

Not many doctors do it free anymore, like they don't do much else.

I had it done at Specsavers.  It would say that it was uncomfortable at times rather being painful.  I think it cost around about £55 but that was a few years ago.

I have been advised to have it done after my annual hearing aid review, Jno.

Boots, around £60, not painful 

Not really painful, although the old metal syringe and warm water was better. But dangerous. Banned many years ago .

It's worth looking for an audiologist as opposed to an employer of a pharmacy .

I have to have it done every 3 months at the hospital. Not really painful but sometimes uncomfortable. I am susceptible to ear infections.

It may be in Scotland but my surgery don't do- they directed me to optical Express who wanted  about £30 an ear.

I bought drops and suction balloon ear wax kit from a supermarket for about £10. Worked a treat

I've thought about it but am fearful of having my eardrum sucked out.

You don't have audiology departments in hospitals wherever you live, newmodarmy?

Have to be referred to Audiology at hospital.

I wasn't going to A &E douglas and if the doctor wouldn't see me for it and told me to go to Optical Express what should I do- just walk into Audiology? 


The doctor asked me what  the symptoms were and I said a cartoon family from Springfield USA.

Full disclosure, I was referred by my GP and had a fair old wait, trying various offerings from the experts at Morrisons, I did miss the balloon therapy one though.

Do they do kids parties too?

My audiology didn't do it. I paid private 

Sorry not painful

I use a DIY kit to remove wax from my ears. Never had a problem. This is it.
