What is ear wax (CERUMEN)?

Ear wax, also known as cerumen, it is a natural substance produced in your ears to keep them clean and protect them from infection, dust and skin debris. It is a sticky oily substance that is secreted from the glands in the ear canal. People have different types of ear wax, soft or hard ear wax or it can appear in different colours.

Often ear wax works it's way out naturally, but in some cases it can build up and block the ears resulting in reduced hearing. Ear wax build up can occur in people of all ages, particular problem is the use of headphones/ earplugs which push ear wax back in the ears. Also those with hearing aids and narrow ear canals may suffer from a build-up of ear wax.

How to safely remove ear wax?

As Audiologist's we advise:

  • Not to use cotton buds or your fingers to remove ear wax, this can push the ear wax further down the ear canal pushing it against the eardrum or cause peforations / ear infections.
  • Not to use Hopi-ear candles or other self-removing tools as these are ineffective and dangerous.
  • To remember the golden rule, not to put anything smaller then your elbow in your ears!

Always use a professional Audiologist (hearing specialist), who are trained in ear wax removal and can safely remove ear wax using microsuction or other techniques. Ear wax build up can cause dull hearing sensation, a blocked ear feeling, ear pain and for hearing aid users further complications. Our Audiologist use Microsuction ear wax removal, this involves a tiny vacuum to gently ease out the ear wax. The Audiologist has full view of the ear canal using microscopic loupes/Light. Microsuction is considered the gold standard for ear wax removal in the UK.

Microsuction ear wax removal

Microsuction is considered the safest option for ear wax removal. It use's a small vacuum to gently remove ear wax. The suction power is very low, it is a very quick procedure and carries low infection risk due to it being a dry procedure. The Audiologist can see what they are doing through the use of loupes/Microscopes. 

At HearAgain earcare, we take digital consent by asking you to fill out a form prior to each ear wax removal. The Audiologist will first inspect your ears using an Otoscope, adhering to BSA guidelines. If there is ear wax the Audiologist will continue to remove the ear wax out your ears. We will ensure you are comfortable and make you feel at ease. We recommend softening the ear wax prior to the appointment with olive oil, no more then 3 days.

Our Testimonials

I had my ear cleared by the lovely audiologist. She was very professional and friendly. I had softened the ear wax as per instructed prior to the appointment and could not believe how much  ear wax came out. It made a huge difference straight away.

I routinely need my ear wax cleared as I wear hearing aids. I was seen by this lovely lady who was very thorough. I’m happy I can use my hearing aids again without the whistling.
