Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Cerumol safe to use if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

    There is no evidence that would suggest using Cerumol ear drops would cause any harm. The absorption of any of Cerumol’s constituents is extremely limited. However, it is always advised to check with your GP or pharmacist before using any medicine whilst pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • How long will I need to use Cerumol Ear Drops?

    Cerumol ear drops should not be used for longer than three days without consulting your doctor.

  • How will I tell if the drops have worked?

    You should use the treatment for a maximum of three days. By the fourth day, the loosened ear wax should have worked its way out on its own. If the ears are still plugged with wax, you will need to visit you doctor or practice nurse as syringing may be necessary. If this is the case, having used the drops will make this procedure easier.

  • What does using Cerumol feel like?

    Upon initial application, the user may experience a warm tingling sensation. Applying these drops to the ear wax can temporary increase deafness, though this is normally short lived. If you are concerned about any of these symptoms, please seek advice from a healthcare professional.

  • How should I store Cerumol ear drops?

    Cerumol should be kept out of sight and reach of children. It should not be used after the expiry date or six months after the drops are opened. The packaging and container can be thrown away with the household rubbish or recycled. 

  • Under what circumstances should Cerumol not be used?

    Cerumol ear drops should not be used if:

    • There is a perforation of the eardrum
    • The ear canal has become inflamed or sore
  • Is there a difference between Cerumol and Cerumol Olive Oil Ear drops?

    Yes, Cerumol ear drops contain a unique oil-based formula that lubricates the wax and ear canal. This has the effect of loosening the ear wax. Cerumol Olive Oil Ear Drops works in a similar fashion. However, the olive oil-based formula offers customer a natural way to gently soften and remove irritating ear wax.
