Boots charge a bullseye is this about right

Any thoughts from you good people

Hi Eastend555 I also need ear syringing & have been waiting since end of May for this. I was told that NHS will do it again once the Covid 19 pandemic has died down whenever that will be. In the meantime I am using Earex quite regularly and also bought this from Amazon smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/produ... (I did check if my GP felt this was ok to use first)

I'm not sure if it has helped at all because I haven't seen any wax on the disposable tips but maybe the wax is quite deep in my ear. Hope you get some relief soon x

Thank you Mena it was very helpful

Hi EastEnders. My husband has the same problem. He has been using olive oil ( recommended by the nurse at our surgery) and earex to no avail. We/ he ( I bought, he used ) have tried most of the gadgets - water syringe -like things, strange twiddle sticks, little spoons and twiddle spirally things- all a waste of money.

Then I bought yet another device. It is a water container with a tube attached. You pump the water with a trigger . It works. He kept using the drops, as you would if you were getting your ears syringed at the doctors.

We got quite a lot of wax out on the first go. You also get a suction ball thing. He has also got some out using that. He ear is now just about clear.

I bought it from Amazon.

I’ll see if I can post a link.

Good morning Mr.D and i am so sorry but i couldn't hear you coz my ears are blocked up with ear wax. I don't suppose you know of any remedies......??? (Joking as my big error was in the fact that our messages are typed to one another and not spoken. Otherwise it just may have made you smile!! 🐿🌈👂👂💉x

Seeing there’s a message addressed to me from you is enough to make me smile, even if I didn’t quite catch what you said.😀x
