User:Hello doctor
User:I am having ear ache XXXXXXX to wax clogged
User:I have consulted a ENT and he gave me soliwax drops plus AZIWOK-500 for 3 days
User:and then he told me to have a syringe procedure after 5 days to clean the ear
User:should i continue with his advice?
Doctor:Syringe procedure is a simple one where your ear will be flushed with water to remove the wax particles.
Doctor:If the wax is hard and impacted, soliwax would dissolve it making it easier for it to be flushed.
Doctor:This treatment is appropriate if you indeed have an impacted wax.
Doctor:Therefore proceed with his advice.
