During the consultation, if you are noted to have an external ear infection that needs treatment, we will examine your ears to determine the nature and severity of the infection. If appropriate, we may offer to prescribe antibiotics or other medications to treat the infection and reduce inflammation. If you require or wish to proceed with a private prescription for the antibiotics we can then arrange this during the consultation for you, and the additional cost for the private prescription (£20) is then paid at the end of the microsuction session.
Otitis externa, also known as swimmer’s ear, is an inflammation or infection of the ear canal, which is the tube that extends from the outer ear to the eardrum. It is usually caused by a bacterial or fungal growth in the ear canal and can be painful and uncomfortable (or itchy). Treatment involves cleaning the ear canal with our microsuction and then using eardrops or spray to control the infection and reduce inflammation. Occasionally oral antibiotics are also prescribed. Our clinicians can assess this for you and if needed prescribe these antibiotics for you.
At Lonsdale Ear Clinic, our microsuction service is a safe, precise, and effective method of removing excess earwax buildup from the ear canal. We use advanced surgical grade ENT microscopes to ensure maximum accuracy and precision during the procedure, while minimizing the risk of damage to the ear canal or eardrum.
The microsuction procedure is a minimally invasive and highly effective method of earwax removal, providing immediate relief from discomfort and hearing difficulties caused by earwax buildup. It is a comfortable and efficient procedure that typically takes only a few minutes per ear, and does not require any liquid or flushing.
At Lonsdale Ear Clinic, we are proud to offer a good value microsuction service to our patients. We understand the importance of ear health, and we want to make sure that our patients have access to safe and effective earwax removal at an affordable price.
