Buy Exterol Ear Drops Online

Exterol ear drops are used to help remove hardened wax from the ear canal. It is suitable for use by adults, children and the elderly. The active ingredient is urea hydrogen peroxide. It works by breaking down the ear wax into small pieces. Excessive, hardened ear wax is quite common. It causes problems when it builds up and blocks the ear canal.

The first symptom is usually a feeling of discomfort and fullness in the ear. This can become painful and cause dizziness and some loss of hearing if left untreated. Exterol makes removal of ear wax easier, and in many cases avoids the need for ear syringing.

Side Effects

Side Effects of Exterol Ear Drops

Like all medicines, Exterol can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

  • A temporary mild bubbling sensation in the ear can occur (due to the release of oxygen as the drops break down the ear wax).
  • The ear drops can make the symptoms of excessive ear wax worse, including some discomfort, irritation or pain, loss of hearing, dizziness and tinnitus (ringing sound in the ear).
  • Very rarely, an unpleasant taste has been reported. Stop using the ear drops immediately if this happens and tell your doctor.

Info Leaflet

Before taking any medication, it is important to read the Patient Information Leaflet. You can find information leaflets for your medicines by typing them into the search bar at medicines.org, or by contacting us.


Directions of use for Exterol Ear Drops

Only use Exterol in the ears.

For adults, children and the elderly: Repeat the following once or twice daily, normally for 3 to 4 days, until
you notice an improvement in your hearing and less discomfort:

  • Turn the cap anti-clockwise. (This will break the seal when you use the drops for the first time
  • Remove the cap to reveal the applicator nozzle.
  • Tilt your head and gently squeeze up to 5 drops into the ear.
  • Keep your head tilted for a few minutes so that the drops stay in the ear.
  • Then wipe away any surplus with a tissue.
  • Repeat in the other ear, if necessary.
  • Wash hands after use.
  • Do not “plug” the ears with loose cotton wool.
  • Always replace the cap after use and return the bottle to the carton.

Note that in some cases excessive ear wax may persist for more than 3 to 4 days, despite softening. If the wax is very hard, the ear drops alone may not be able to clear the ear canal. This may cause some temporary loss of hearing. In these cases, you should consult your doctor, nurse or pharmacist for further advice.


Warnings for Exterol Ear Drops

Do not use Exterol:

  • if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to urea hydrogen peroxide or any of the other ingredients of Exterol.
  • if you have a history of ear problems unless used under the close supervision of your doctor, nurse or pharmacist.
  • if you are also putting anything else in the ear (such as other ear drops or a hearing aid).
  • if your eardrum is (or has been) damaged.
  • if you suffer from dizziness.
  • if there is anything else wrong with your ear - such as pain, swelling, discharge, infection or tinnitus (ringing sounds in the ear).
  • if you have tried to remove the ear wax using fingernails, cotton buds or other implements. (This is
    because you might have damaged the delicate inner lining of the ear, leading to swelling or infection.) This could make it painful to use the ear drops.
  • if you have had your ear syringed in the last 2 to 3 days – this could also make it painful to use the eardrops.

Take special care when using this product:

  • If you are in any doubt whether this product is suitable for you, talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist
    before use.

If Exterol gets into the eyes

  • Take care to avoid getting Exterol into your eyes.
  • If this happens, rinse the eye immediately with water for 10 to 15 minutes, holding the eyelids apart and avoiding getting the rinse liquid into the other eye.
  • Tell your doctor or pharmacist if irritation persists.
