Blocked ears (wax)
Who do I see?
A pharmacist can help with earwax build-up
Speak to a pharmacist about earwax build-up. They can give advice and suggest treatments.
They might recommend chemical drops to dissolve the earwax. The earwax should fall out on its own or dissolve after about a week.
Do not use drops if you have a hole in your eardrum (a perforated eardrum).
Do not use your fingers or any objects like cotton buds to remove earwax. This will push it in and make it worse.
