This syringe is used to clear out build up of earwax within the ear canal and IT WORKS!
The usual price for this item is around the £7.00 mark and I got mine several months ago from amazon.The reviews are great.Amazon link here
amazon.co.uk/Acu…XGA
People,myself included,thought that this is harmful but it couldn't be further from the truth.I personally found it to be very therapuetic.My experience is a bit graphic but read on if you dare to.I was suffering from a dullness in my left ear.I knew it was down to earwax because I wear earplugs for bed as I work night shifts.I tried everything at first from olive oil to prescribed sprays.none of them worked until this little device came through the post.Now you basically fill the syringe with warm water and place the syringe lightly into the the ear opening.The holes on the end of the syringe are not central and the jets actually squirt outwards so water isn't thrusted directly into the centre of the ear canal.This makes the water cascade around the SIDES of the ear so no pain is experienced.You have to be persistant.It took me about 8-10 syringes full to clean my ear and clean it did.To my amazement a large flat almost black pancake shaped lump of earwax was forced out of my ear.Because the water you inject is warm it softens the wax so much it comes out like a playdoh consitency and one other thing is that the stuff smelled so bad I had to hold my nose.
Because earwax usually builds up very very gradually its actually hard to establish if you have any loss of hearing due to build ups so I would recommend getting one of these anyway.

Tried olive oil but didn't work for me although I understand it it works on some people but it takes time and patience

i've got this and worked for me. Read the reviews on Amazon,
amazon.co.uk/Acu…wax
its designed with numerous outlets in the head so the water comes out in different directions, and water escapes your ear so there is no pressure. If you use warm water it softens and erodes the wax so it can take some time doing it over and over again, but eventually it gets it out. It basically runs water in and out your ear gently so you can't damage yourself, but it takes time.
I had used a cotton bud and and must have push the wax aginst my ear drum because i couldn't hear for a week in one ear. Olive oil was no use, so I used this and it cleared it. Its worth a try, mine was £6 from Amazon. From memory this shouldn't be used by people with perforated ear drums.

As a qualified health professional who regularly irrigates ears for patients with wax build I would warn against this. It is really dangerous if ears are irrigated incorrectly and can cause lasting damage to the eardrum and ultimately hearing. We often can discover that patients have unknown damage to their eardrums such as perforations (holes) whereby irrigation would be dangerous this is another reason why it is so important ears are checked by a health professional qualified in ear care. Also your balance could be affected. I would recommend using 1-2 drops of olive oil a day in affected ears as discussed this can sometimes not achieve full results and if so you should make an appointment at your GP practice

I bought this a year ago my wife filled with warm water etc but just didn't work after numerous goes please don't waste your money and go to your local surgury

Have some heat. Order placed

....and you can fry your breakfast in it after you've used it.....

I used to have to go every year to have my ears syringed until I bought one of these. I just put few drops in for one day, then use this with warm water and it clears them every time.

Not been to GP in 8 years now.

If your hearing is down and you suspect it's due to ear wax you really should get the diagnosis confirmed by your GP or practice nurse. You're taking a chance if you blindly assume it's wax causing your symptoms and you could end up causing some serious damage.

The last time I went to have my ears syringed the nurse used an electrical device which pulsed water in, removing loads of crud and totally painless. Very different from when I had it done as a child and it used to hurt.

I'm not sure this could be as effective.

Unless you've got a perforated eardrum (which you'd know about) these are totally safe.

Ignore the professionals? Fool!

Why pay when you can get it done for free at the surgery?! Cold.

If your GP surgery is really refusing to do this, report them. I have never heard of something so daft.

Seems worth a go. I have tried Otex before and it didnt do a thing. Cheers OP!

I bought one of these a couple of years ago and it's great. I found the best method was to give your ears a couple of days worth of hits with the olive oil spray then use this with warm water. The amount of crap that comes out is unreal.

About six months ago I had some badly blocked ears. I bought this item and after using the necessary olive oil drops, syringed my ears. This product did remove a certain amount of wax but failed to completely do the job, I ended up using the local surgery (couple of weeks waiting time) and it was job done. The nurse gave me a worrying warning not to use this method, it can cause severe damage to the delicate parts of you ear.

As a specialist practitioner I would whole heartedly agree and add that the amount of damage you can do to your hearing in the long term is irreversible.

I have a perforated eardrum. It's painless and unless it was picked up on an ear examination when I was younger then I'd be unaware of it., so to say that people would be aware of it is somewhat misleading. Using this item on an undiagnosed perforated eardrum may cause more damage and complications.

If other options have been exhausted with eardrops etc then a gp should be visited and if they cannot resolve stubborn blockages then you'd be referred to an ear specialist.

thanks op. surely if these were that unsafe they wouldn't be allowed to sell them??

Carry on doing so. These kits should be banned in my professional opinion. Injecting anything into your ears without examination is simply dangerous.

takes a week to get an appointment if I'm lucky last time I got one if these came within two days worked a treat. just use otex/olive oil for a couple of days prior and take it steady

Whatever method you choose for removal it is best to ensure that the wax is a soft as possible. The best way to achieve this is to insert drops of oil into the ear over a period of about a week. Our surgery will not consider syringing unless the wax has been sufficiently softened first. So in your case make an appointment and by the time the week is up your wax will have softened to enable syringing to take place!

Items like this should be banned.

I have one of these, only had to use it once, and it did a fantastic job.
you are best softening the wax with olive oil first for several days before using it,
and be warned, it will take several attempts to get results, don't think one or two squirts will do it.
and for gods sake, DON'T be tempted to blast it into your ear,
just squirt warm water into your ear repeatadly and it WILL eventually do the job.

I love these "health care professionals" who talk as if getting an appointment at the Doctor is as easy as walking into a Bakery and ordering a Loaf of Bread. I'm sure that the advice given is correct and well intentioned, but away from the internet and out in the real world have you actually tried getting an appointment at surgeries in some areas? or even your own??, at our local one, it goes a little something like this....

1) If you want an appointment the same day / next day, normally you are given a window in which to ring, usually 8AM to 8.30AM, this Window is actually reduced to a cut off of 8.20AM on "training" days, (so please ensure that you don't do something as silly as get sick on these days). During this 20 - 30 minute window, the mad, desperate scramble to get an appointment and the constant sound of engaged lines, is something akin to a "Ring in now and the first random caller we pick will win a brand new BMW" competition on the radio.

2) Even if you are one of the lucky few who get chosen from the switchboard tombola (usually the ones who are ringing from a landline and three mobile phones all at the same time), then you will then have all of your symptoms scrutinised for worthiness by a receptionist. Unless you are currently squirting blood over you living room decor, or holding a severed limb in your other hand, then you will probably be deemed to fall into the non urgent category and are unlikely to qualify for a same day appointment, you will then get tutted at and allocated a non urgent Doctor / Nurse appointment which can be anything up to 2 weeks away.

Why? is the war still on?, is it 2014 or 1814?.

So unfortunately, some people don't use these things out of choice, more out of sheer desperation because the 'right' way wasn't made easily available to them. Fix that first - then feel free to lecture.

No smoke and mirrors - no pack drill.

Voted HOT! I would totally use this, but apply baby oil to the affected ear a few days prior to using.

Are you a Doctor?

Dont get why so many 'professionals' are slating this product. From reviews and such these do work for the majority of people whom have bought these.

I have used one of these after my GP didn't want to help in syringing. It worked really well. My advice would be to see your GP first.

Someone I know syringes his ears every few months using the water from a shower head.

Find the ear drops that work for you, I've found most of them to be rubbish!

this sounds like potentially sensible advice but seeing the rest of your posts have to discount it as rubbish
