What is Earex Advance?
Earex Advance are ear drops designed to help to clear waxy buildup from your ears. If you suffer from blocked ears due to wax, Earex Advance can help to clear your earwax quickly and easily. Ideal for those who want to unblock their ears without having to resort to syringing.
Why do I have blocked ears?
There are many reasons why your ears may be blocked with waxy build up, and many people suffer from this problem throughout the course of their lives. Some of the most common causes of earwax blockages in the ears include:
- Your age – earwax can become harder and more difficult to remove as you grow older.
- Your ear canals are hairy.
- Your ear canals are narrow.
- You use a hearing aid, earplugs, or any other in-ear device that could push earwax into your ears.
- Your ears produce a lot of wax – some people simply produce more wax than others.
How will these ear drops clear earwax from my ears?
Earex Advance ear drops contain the active ingredients glycerol and urea peroxide, which work together to help to remove wax from your ears. Glycerol works to gently soften any hardened earwax, while urea peroxide releases oxygen to help to break up wax so it can be removed more easily.
How to use Earex Advance ear drops.
Tilt your head to the side with the ear you want to treat facing upwards. Squeeze the bottle of Earex Advance to deposit 3 – 6 drops into the ear. Keep your head tilted for a few minutes to allow drops to soak in and work their way toward the eardrum. Keep the drops in the ear for a few minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water. Wipe excess drops and earwax from outer ear using cotton wool or tissue. For best results, repeat once or twice a day for 3 – 6 days.

Please could you tell me how to rinse the ear after using Earex Advance? What would I put the water in with? or does it just mean the outer ear and not right down inside? Many thanks
I have attached the manufacturers information leaflet https://www.earex.co.uk/media/4615/earex-pil.pdf
The main area you clean is the outer ear with warm water and the inside will naturally expel
