The body produces ear wax as a natural defence mechanism to stop things going into the ear canal.
It is very important not to put any instrument into the ear as it can impact the wax further.
Many of our pharmacies have pharmacists that can look into your ear with an otoscope to confirm the presence of ear wax.
If wax is still present than a visit to the doctor is recommended.
When should I go to the doctors?
If there is severe pain in the ear or the patient feels unwell or there is discharge from the ear.
