Ear syringing is a very common practice among general practitioners (GPs). It is used by many as the treatment of choice for cerumen (ear wax), and is usually effective and safe.
Ear syringing, also known as ear irrigation, is a procedure commonly used to manage cerumen impaction (ear wax build-up). It involves inserting warm water into the ear canal in an attempt to flush the ear wax out.
Ear syringing can be done by our nursing staff once ordered by a GP at a consultation.
