Kingsbridge Hearing Care recommends Earol to help soften and loosen earwax. Earol is a sterile olive oil spray with a nozzle applicator which makes it easy to use and disperses the oil into the ear canal in a fine mist. This allows it to coat and soften the wax with less likelihood of it blocking the ear compared to olive oil inserted via a dropper.
In some cases, depending on the amount and consistency of the wax, Earol will help to soften and loosen the wax but it will still require professional removal.
Unless you have previously been advised to keep your ears dry, please only use sterile olive oil in the days leading up to your appointment, not all ear wax softeners are compatible with microsuction and using alternative drops/sprays increases the likelihood of a second visit being required to complete the procedure.
