Waxsol Ear Drops - 10ml
For easy removal of ear wax.
Removal of ear wax
How does it work?
Waxsol ear drops contain the active ingredient docusate sodium, which helps to soften ear wax.
Ear wax is a normal secretion of the ear. It is produced to provide a protective layer in the ear and on the ear drum. There are times when too much wax is produced. This can result in hearing difficulties and may cause pain.
Docusate is a surface active agent, which means that it allows water to penetrate into a wax plug that may have built up in the ear.
A hard plug of wax can be softened using Waxsol ear drops. Wax can also be removed by your doctor or practice nurse, by flushing the ear with warm water (syringing). If there is a lot of wax or the wax is very hard, it may need to be softened first and Waxsol ear drops can also be used for this.
