Argh my ears

It’s one of the most trivial/least glamorous of ailments, but my ears bloody fill up with wax at this time of year and only syringing at the docs will help. I’ve literally not got a minute to spare at the moment and DH away with work so it’s just me and two little ones. No time for the faff of it all. But I can’t bloody hear a thing! Also it’s making me feel sick, dizzy and miserable. I don’t suppose anyone has any advice but I just wanted to moan really.

Is it allergies? I sympathise - my daughter wears hearing aids and wax is a massive battle....guessing olive oil won't help? Sorry for pointing out the obvious but really feel for you.

Hop over to sporner corner. I’m sure they’ll have plenty of tips that don’t involve syringing.

Buy a home syringing kit from amazon?

No idea of effectiveness but the amazon one does have lots of reviews.

Thanks guys! I can barely wax my own legs these days (inept) so I’m not sure a home syringe kit will work (dh disgusted by my ears so no help there)! Good idea though! And the sympathy was nice thank you moita. Probably mainly what I was hoping for 😂
