Ear Wax Clinic
Sister Teresa Munro RGN - Somerset Ear Wax Clinic
Teresa removes ear wax by irrigation, which has replaced the old-fashioned technique of ear syringing. She uses an electronic ear irrigation machine which gently pumps water into the ear canal. The water breaks down and dislodges the ear wax build-up and then flushes it out of the canal. In most cases the blockage is removed in minutes.
Teresa will also carry out an ear check prior to audiology appointments.
There are some conditions for which ear irrigation isn’t appropriate.
