What is the function of earwax?
Cerumen, commonly referred to as earwax, is a natural secretion produced by the glands within the ear canal. Its primary function is to safeguard the ear against dust, debris, and other foreign objects by creating a protective barrier that traps these particles and prevents them from reaching the eardrum.
Moreover, earwax possesses antimicrobial properties that aid in preventing ear infections. It also helps keep the skin within the ear canal moisturized, preventing dryness and itchiness.
However, the accumulation of earwax can lead to hearing problems and discomfort. It’s important to seek medical attention from a healthcare professional if you experience symptoms of excessive earwax buildup.
Causes of earwax blockages?
A blockage of earwax occurs when the wax produced in the ear canal accumulates and becomes impacted, resulting in a buildup of the waxy substance within the ear. This can lead to various symptoms such as pain, tinnitus, hearing loss, and a sense of fullness in the ear.
There are several factors that can contribute to earwax blockages, including having narrow or curved ear canals, using hearing aids or earplugs that can push earwax deeper into the ear, and an increase in the production of earwax as we age, which can become harder and cause blockages.
If you experience any symptoms of a blockage, it’s crucial to seek medical assistance from a healthcare professional.
Ear syringing in Harrow
At our clinic, we recommend microsuction as the preferred method of earwax removal. This is because microsuction is a safer and more effective technique for eliminating earwax. Microsuction involves using a small suction device to gently extract earwax, while ear syringing involves flushing the ear with water, which can be uncomfortable and messy. Moreover, ear syringing may push earwax deeper into the ear canal, making it harder to remove.
If you are experiencing symptoms of earwax blockage, it is essential to seek medical attention from a healthcare professional who can provide ear microsuction.
At our clinic, we prioritize microsuction over ear candling as a method of earwax removal. This is because microsuction is considered a safer and more effective option for removing earwax. Ear candling, also known as ear coning, involves the insertion of a lit candle into the ear canal. The heat from the candle is supposed to create a vacuum that removes earwax. However, there is no scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of ear candling, and it can be hazardous, causing burns, blockages, and injury to the ear canal. Therefore, we do not offer ear candling as a service at our clinic.
