Ear washes

When is the ear washes procedure indicated

Ear washes are indicated if you have excess wax (cerumen) buildup in your outer ear. This can cause a "full" feeling in your ear, decreased hearing and balance, pain or itching.

Ear washes are also indicated if the view of the tympanic membrane is impaired due to excess earwax buildup.

How to perform the ear washings procedure at home

The medical staff coming to your home will explain the procedure and then ask your permission for it to be performed.

You will be asked to sit on a bed, sofa or armchair which you will need to cover with a waterproof material to prevent it from getting dirty. Oxygenated water or cerumenolytic substance will be introduced into the ear canal and left for 15-30 minutes to soften the ear wax. After that the healthcare professional will put a kidney tray under your ear and ask you to open your mouth. The flushing fluid will be inserted into the ear canal using a Guyon syringe and wait for the contents to drain out. Repeat the procedure until the fluid drained is clear. At the end of the procedure, the ear canal will be dried with compresses.

The medical staff will make sure your condition is good before you leave.

What is the price for the ear cleaning procedure

The price for ear washes is 100 lei for both ears.
