Exterol is ear drops designed to help to clear blocked ears by softening hardened ear wax. This makes removing ear wax from your ears a lot easier, helping the wax to clear from your ears by itself. Ideal for those who suffer from blocked ears due to dry or hardened ear wax.
What happens when your ears are blocked with wax?

How will these ear drops help to remove ear wax?

How to use Exterol ear drops.
Tilt your head to one side, making sure that the ear you wish to treat is facing up. Using the applicator nozzle, squeeze 4 or 5 Exterol ear drops into the ear. Keep your head tilted to the side for a few minutes, so drops have a chance to work their way into the ear. Wipe any drops that have leaked out of the ear with a tissue or cotton wool. Repeat in the other ear if necessary. For best results, use Exterol once or twice a day for 3 – 4 days.
