What is earwax (CERUMEN)?

Earwax, 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 wax, soft or hard wax or it can appear in different colours.

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

How to deal with blocked ears?

As Audiologist's we advise:

  • Not to use cotton buds or your fingers to remove wax, this can push the 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 to remove wax safely out your ears. Wax build up can cause dull hearing sensation, a blocked ear feeling, pain and for hearing aid users further complications. Our Audiologist use Microsuction for ear wax removal, this involves a tiny vacuum to gently ease out the wax. The Audiologist has full view of the ear canal using microscopic loupes/Light.

Microsuction

Microsuction is considered the safest option for wax removal. It use's a small vacuum to gently clear the ears. 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 Hear Again earcare, we take digital consent by asking you to fill out a form prior to each wax removal. The Audiologist will first inspect your ears using an Otoscope, adhering to BSA guidelines. If there is wax the Audiologist will continue to remove the wax out your ears. We will ensure you are comfortable and make you feel at ease. We recommend softening the wax prior to the appointment with olive oil, no more then 3 days.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Our Testimonials

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