What is Ear wax?
Earwax, or cerumen, is a natural substance produced by glands in the ear canal to moisturize and protect the ears from foreign particles. Although regular amounts of earwax are harmless and exit the ear canal naturally, an excessive or impacted buildup can cause symptoms such as hearing loss, pain, ringing, or dizziness. If these symptoms occur, earwax removal may be necessary to alleviate discomfort.
What is ear microsuction?
Ear microsuction is a medical procedure used to safely remove earwax or foreign objects from the ear canal. An ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist or audiologist use a specialized suction device, known as a microsuction machine, to gently extract earwax. Microsuction is the safest and most effective method of earwax removal, causing no discomfort and avoiding the use of invasive instruments, such as ear syringes, which can damage the ear canal’s delicate tissues. Microsuction is especially useful for individuals with impacted earwax or medical conditions that require special attention.
Ear syringing in Havering
Ear syringing is a common method for removing earwax, involving flushing the ear canal with a water-based solution. This method can be performed by a healthcare professional or at home, but may cause discomfort or pain if the earwax is impacted. It is important to note that improper use of the syringe or using hot water can damage the ear canal or inner ear. As a safer and more effective alternative, many healthcare professionals now prefer ear microsuction for removing earwax.
Ear candling in Havering
Ear candling, also known as ear coning, is a traditional method for removing earwax that involves inserting a cone-shaped candle made of wax or cotton into the ear canal and lighting it to create suction. However, there is no scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of ear candling for earwax removal, and it can be dangerous, causing harm to the ear canal, perforation of the eardrum, and injury to the inner ear. Therefore, healthcare professionals do not recommend ear candling and advise seeking professional medical treatment for earwax buildup.
