Ear Wax Removal
An earwax blockage occurs when earwax accumulates in your ear or becomes too difficult to wash away naturally.
Earwax, also known as cerumen, can be helpful and is a natural part of your body’s defense system. It lubricates and protects the ear canal by trapping dirt and foreign elements. Earwax also has antibacterial properties, which helps keep your ear healthy.
But sometimes, the earwax has a hard time naturally working its way out of the canal. An earwax blockage occurs when earwax accumulates in your ear or becomes too difficult to wash away naturally. The most common symptoms of a wax blockage are:
- Not hearing well (hearing loss)
- Pain in ear
- A sense of ear fullness or pressure
- Itching in the ear canal
- Ringing or buzzing in the ears.
