Keeping your ears clean
Ear wax is perfectly normal and supports the ears to self-clean, so there is really no need to clean your ears yourself.
We recommend you do not use cotton buds, hairpins etc. to get ear wax out, as this may cause damage or push the wax further in. If ear wax is causing itchy ears, try not to scratch and instead, book an appointment for our qualified audiologists to assess your ear canals and offer treatment options.
Hearing aid wearers are more prone to having ear wax build up, and for many of the audiological tests and procedures it is important to have ear canals free of wax.
If you require wax to be removed, we offer a safe and professional option known as micro suction.
