Remedy for Itchy Waxy Ears?

I get really waxy ears, the wax is wet not dry and there's so much of it, it sometimes over flows my inner ear. My ears also get quite itchy, not all the time just sometimes and sometimes my ears may feel like they've got a throbbing pain, rarely though.


I've tried Otex ear drops which didn't work, I've had my ears syringed last year which made them feel sore for weeks afterward. What ear drops can I use to get rid of excess wax and stop the infernal itching? I'm in UK.

I'm in the UK too. Otex did nothing for me when I had a similar problem (that turned out to be a fungus I picked up whilst in Central America - have you been on holiday to a tropical or semi-tropical country?).


It took years to figure out and then only because I read something in a travel mag about tourists returning home with a little extra unwanted 'souvenir' like a fungus. I took the article into the GP appointment with me and from there the GP sorted it. He took a scraping (painless), sent it off for culturing, and once the results came back he was able to put me on the proper meds.

Ask the Boots chemist for advice but what you really need is to be seen at the GP surgery.

I was on the anti-fungal medication for nearly two years but it was so worth it - such a relief to be rid of that condition. I hope whatever it turns out to be is quickly sorted for you!
