    I have had to get this done twice and pure bliss afterwards.

    One of my favourite feelings is having my ears syringed. Having nice clean ears and being able to hear is the best.

    Go to a ear specialist and have them vacuume is even better! Dont have a gush of water in your ear. lol

    My GP doesn't like to do it. He has syringed one of my ears out a few times over the years but I have to do those drops that soften the wax up first which means by the time I get it done I can barely hear a thing.

    Oohhhhhhh ahhhhhhh no! Vacuuming is excruciatingly painful!!!!

    I needed my ear vacuumed when I had compacted earwax on the drum. It was one of the most awful experiences of my life.

    I've used the candles, do you get more out with stringing though?

    I'm subscribing. Wondering now if I should do a candle or syringe (never done either!)
