In the United Kingdom it is estimated that around 3.9% of the population require management of ear wax each year with many people having to wait 12 to 16 weeks to get treatment. These statistics are astonishing and due to the lack of treatment availability with the NHS many people simply go on living their lives with this condition, unaware that they can get treated at their local pharmacy. Here at S & S Chemists we want to help our customers with conditions such as this and that is why we have partnered up with TympaHealth to provide easy and accessible Ear Wax Removal in London.
Our pharmacy now has the ability to offer hearing screening, ear diagnostics, wax removal & other services that may be a major benefit for the local community & other existing healthcare services. By making these services more accessible we are able to remove the
hassle of visiting the GP or waiting weeks for treatment. It also relieves the strain on the NHS which is hugely encouraged at this time.
So, why is it important to take care of your hearing health?
Taking care of your hearing is vital! We all want to live life to the fullest and that is why good ear & hearing health is important to people of all ages. There are many factors that can affect our ear health including age, the misuse of ear buds, constant exposure to very loud noises and of course the build up of wax. If our ear health is compromised then our ability to hear deteriorates, this often causes people to be socially withdrawn.
Signs and Symptoms to look out for…
Being aware of your ear health will allow you to better manage your hearing. The following signs and symptoms could indicate that you have an ear or hearing problem:
– Loss of hearing
– ears feeling full
– ringing and itching
– loss of balance, dizziness
Diagnosis & Treatment with TympaHealth
Thanks to modern technology, TympaHealth treatments and procedures can help to quickly diagnose ear & hearing conditions. Infections as well as excessive & compacted wax can be identified & treated quickly & painlessly at our pharmacy in London.
Each appointment will take 30 minutes and cost £50. One of our specialist clinicians will carry out the test. Once they have removed some wax the hearing screening will be performed. During the examination, high definition images and videos will be taken. This will identify any hearing issues and whether or not you may require further treatment from specialist doctors. In most cases however, the initial problem is simply the presence of excessive wax itself. If this is the case, a fast & painless procedure can be performed to clear the ear of any debris or built up wax. This procedure could immediately improve hearing capabilities.
More on Microsuction
Ear Microsuction is the safest and most effective way to remove earwax. It works by inserting a low pressure suction probe into the ear. This probe will be controlled by the pharmacist who will be wearing a microscope that will allow them to look clearly into the ear canal to remove the wax.
This procedure is painless and does not involve water being squirted into your ear canal like syringing does. It is a simple and clean procedure.
