Wax occlusion (or blockage) is a common problem, particularly when water gets trapped behind the wax. Over the years many techniques have been used to remove wax including Hopi candles, drops and syringing. Whilst we still occasionally use traditional syringing for wax clearance we also can offer treatment with ProPulse devices which are more gentle yet equally effective. Your GP will be able to advise. These treatments are available at all of our branches.
