What are Clogged ears?
Clogged ears, also referred to as blocked or impacted ears, occur when the ear canal becomes obstructed, making it difficult for sound waves to pass through. This can result from a buildup of earwax, fluid from an ear infection, or other physical blockages. Symptoms may include discomfort, fullness, muffled hearing, and temporary hearing loss. Over-the-counter ear drops, ear irrigation, or manual removal can typically treat the condition. However, chronic or persistent clogging may indicate an underlying health condition that an Audiologist should evaluate. Sharp objects should never be used to remove earwax or any other obstruction, as they may harm the ear canal or eardrum.
Microsuction is a safe and effective technique for removing earwax and obstructions from the ear canal. It utilizes a gentle suction device to extract blockages without invasive irrigation or instruments that could damage the ear. At Verified Hearing, we employ e-microsuction, which is the gold standard for earwax removal. This quick, painless procedure can provide immediate relief from symptoms such as clogged ears, muffled hearing, and discomfort. Microsuction is particularly beneficial for those with narrow or curved ear canals, perforated eardrums, or other ear conditions that may be unsuitable for alternative methods of earwax removal.
Symptoms of excess wax buildup
Excessive earwax can result in a range of symptoms, from mild to severe. Typical symptoms include dizziness, ringing in the ears, partial hearing loss, itching in the ear, pain or discomfort in the ear, and a sense of fullness in the ear. It is not recommended to remove earwax with cotton swabs, as it can lead to further impaction. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention to identify if earwax buildup is the root cause and receive proper treatment.
Ear syringing in Haringey
Ear syringing is a procedure used to remove earwax from the ear canal by flushing warm water into the ear to loosen and extract the impacted earwax. Although the procedure is typically quick and painless and can offer immediate relief from symptoms such as discomfort, partial hearing loss, or ringing in the ears, it is not recommended for people with perforated eardrums, as the water can cause additional damage. Additionally, ear syringing may not be as effective as other methods, such as microsuction earwax removal, at removing hard or impacted earwax. At Verified Hearing, we prioritize the use of microsuction for earwax removal as it is a safer, more effective and more precise technique that delivers excellent results.
Ear candling, or ear coning, is a method that involves inserting a cone-shaped candle into the ear canal and lighting it. However, medical professionals do not recommend ear candling for earwax removal as there is no scientific evidence to support its effectiveness. In fact, it can be dangerous and cause burns, injury to the ear canal, and hearing damage. It is important to use proven and safe methods like microsuction earwax removal.
