Earwax is a natural substance produced by the ear, can sometimes accumulate and lead to discomfort or hearing difficulties.


1. Understanding Ear Wax: Ear wax, or cerumen, is a protective substance produced by the ear to trap dust and foreign particles. In most cases, the ears naturally expel excess wax.


2. Signs of Excessive Ear Wax:

  • Reduced hearing.
  • Earache or discomfort.
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
  • Dizziness.


3. Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do not use cotton swabs: They can push wax further into the ear.
  • Do use ear drops: Over-the-counter drops can help soften the wax for easier removal.


4. Seeking Professional Help: If you experience persistent symptoms or discomfort, consult with a healthcare professional or an audiologist for a thorough examination.


5. Ear Wax Removal Methods:

a. Ear Irrigation: A safe and controlled method using warm water to flush out excess wax.

b. Microsuction: A gentle suction technique performed by a trained professional using a specialised device.


6. Home Remedies:

  • Ear Drops: Over-the-counter drops can be used to soften earwax before professional removal.
  • Warm Water Rinse: Tilting the head and irrigating the ear with warm water in the shower may help.


7. When to Avoid Self-Removal:

  • If you have a history of ear issues.
  • If you've had ear surgery.
  • If you experience pain, dizziness, or bleeding.


8. Professional Ear Wax Removal: Seek assistance from a healthcare professional or an audiologist for safe and effective removal if home remedies are ineffective.


9. Prevention Tips:

  • Avoid inserting objects into the ear canal.
  • Use earplugs in dusty or windy environments.
  • Regularly clean hearing aids or earphones.
