Ear Wax Removal

Ear wax protects your ear from dust and other particles. Over time, however, it may build up in your ear canal and cause a blockage, making it difficult to hear. 

What causes an ear wax blockage? 

Most often however, ear wax blockage is the result of the improper use of a cotton swab. 

Cotton swabs should never go inside of your ear canal, because it can push and compact the existing wax in your ear canal, causing a blockage can occur.

Signs of Ear Wax Build Up

  • Earache
  • Sudden or partial hearing loss, which is usually temporary.
  • Tinnitus, which is a ringing or buzzing in the ear.
  • A feeling of fullness in the ear

Preventing Wax Buildup

  • Make a video otoscopy appointment to visualize your ear canal health.
  • Do not use cotton swabs – as you may make the problem worse.
  • To soften earwax, you can purchase over-the-counter drops made specifically for that purpose.
