Otex ear drops contain urea hydrogen peroxide which breaks down ear wax into small pieces. This makes it easier to remove and may also avoid the need for syringing
Otex Ear Drops are the UK’s number one selling ear wax removal drops. They include a tried and trusted dual action formula which is clinically proven to help treat problematic ear wax. Excessive, hardened ear wax is quite common and produced by the tiny glands in the skin which line the ear canal. In most individuals, the thin layer of wax breaks down naturally into tiny flakes, and leave the ear unnoticed. Where cases of large quantities of ear wax are produced, a build-up can occur and cause a blockage in the ear. As the blockage continues to manifest, symptoms of discomfort and fullness in the ear tend to follow. If left untreated, this can become painful and cause dizziness and a loss of hearing.
Otex Ear Drops contain the active ingredient, urea hydrogen peroxide 5% w/w. Urea hydrogen peroxide works by softening the hardened ear wax and breaking it down into small flakes, which can then be released from the ear more easily. In many cases, Otex should help you to avoid booking an appointment with your medical practitioner, to have your ears syringed.
