Ear Wax

Ear wax, also known as cerumen, is a natural substance produced by the glands in the ear canal. It acts as a protective barrier for the delicate skin of the ear canal and helps to keep it moisturized. Usually, ear wax migrates from the ear canal to the opening of the ear and falls out naturally. However, sometimes it can build up and become impacted, leading to symptoms such as ear pain, ringing in the ears, hearing loss, and itching. It is important to seek the advice of a healthcare professional if you are experiencing symptoms related to ear wax, as attempting to remove it yourself with cotton swabs or other objects can push it further into the ear canal and cause damage.

What is ear wax removal?

Ear wax removal is the process of removing excessive or impacted ear wax from the ear canal. This is typically done to alleviate symptoms such as ear pain, ringing in the ears, hearing loss, and itching, or to prevent complications such as infection. There are several methods of ear wax removal, including irrigation, candling, and microsuction. Irrigation involves flushing the ear canal with a gentle stream of water to remove the ear wax. Ear drops use a combination of oils and other substances to soften the ear wax, making it easier to remove.
Microsuction is a safe and effective method of removing ear wax, performed by trained healthcare professionals using specialized equipment. It is important to seek the advice of a healthcare professional for ear wax removal, as attempting to remove it yourself with cotton swabs or other objects can push it further into the ear canal and cause damage.

Symptoms of excess wax buildup

When earwax builds up in excess, it can cause a range of symptoms, such as discomfort, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), a feeling of fullness in the ear, and impaired hearing. In some cases, earwax accumulation can lead to infection and pain. These symptoms are often caused by a blockage in the ear canal, which can prevent sound from reaching the eardrum. If left untreated, excessive earwax buildup can cause more serious hearing problems. Signs of earwax buildup include muffled hearing, itching, ear pain, ringing in the ears, and discharge from the ear. It’s important to address excessive earwax promptly to avoid any potential hearing problems.

Methods of ear wax removal

Ear syringing is a method of ear wax removal that involves using a bulb syringe or a pulsed water jet to flush the ear canal with water. This method can be effective, but it can also push the ear wax further into the ear canal and cause damage if not performed correctly.

Ear candling is an alternative therapy that involves inserting a lit, cone-shaped candle into the ear canal. The heat and suction created by the candle are thought to remove ear wax and impurities from the ear. However, this method has been discredited by the medical community and is not supported by scientific evidence.

Microsuction is a safe and effective method of removing ear wax. It involves using gentle suction to remove the ear wax, performed by trained healthcare professionals using specialized equipment. Microsuction is considered the best method of ear wax removal as it is safe, effective, and performed by trained professionals.

Overall, microsuction is the best method of ear wax removal due to its safety and effectiveness. It is performed by trained healthcare professionals using specialized equipment, providing patients with the peace of mind that their ear wax will be removed safely and effectively.

The doctor was very nice. He checked my son's ears, but there was no microsuction needed. My son had no earwax in his ears that needed to be removed. Therefore, I don't understand why I was charged £120 for something that was not done. In cases like this, clients should get some of their money back, don't you think? It's common in other clinics.
