It could be just Ear Wax!

Ear Wax: It is important to have ear wax, essential in fact! Everybody produces ear wax, it keeps the ear canal lubricated and protects the ear against dust, dirt and bacteria which help prevent infection. Wax is a combination of skin cells, dust and oily secretions from the glands in the ear canal, sometimes wax may build up particularly if it is very dry, a person has narrow ear canals or very hairy ears but also if something has pushed it down into the canal such as a cotton bud or hearing aid. Once ear wax has served its purpose it eventually migrates to the surface, dries up and falls out of the ears without us even knowing. The issues arise when the wax becomes impacted as the normal transit is interrupted and this can causes numerous problems.

The use of cotton buds can be dangerous for our ear health and hearing for a number of reasons. If cotton buds are inserted too deep into the ear canal, it can cause the perforation of the ear drum, causing pain, tinnitus, or even long-term hearing loss. 
Repeated use of cotton buds can also increase the risk of an ear infection as the stick can damage the delicate structures within the ear, causing redness and/or bleeding which is then susceptible to infection.

FAQ
  • What is the safest and easiest way to remove ear wax?

  • Why do I have so much earwax?
    Earwax build-up can affect anyone, although people who have narrow ear canals or wear hearing aids may be more likely to have frequent earwax build up. In fact, the most common cause of earwax blockage is utilising cotton swabs or other objects in your ear canal which pushes the wax deeper into the ear canal, thereby creating a blockage.
  • Can earwax cause hearing loss?
    Earwax build-up is a leading cause of hearing loss. However, it is also easily reversed. You may need earwax removing if you have or are experiencing any of the following signs/symptoms; Hearing loss Earache Tinnitus Itchiness Vertigo (spinning sensation) If you are a hearing aid user, you may also need earwax removing regularly as the hearing aid stimulates the production of earwax which blocks the hearing aid and can also damage the hearing aid components due to the acid within the cerumen (earwax).
  • When should earwax be removed?
    Earwax is produced as part of a natural process for cleaning and protecting the ear; in the majority of cases, it does not need to be removed. Normally earwax is naturally removed from the ear canal spontaneously through natural jaw movement. If this natural mechanism is disrupted or inadequate, wax may then become retained and compacted in the ear canal which is likely to need intervention. Generally earwax removal should only be offered to patients when earwax is contributing to hearing loss or other symptoms such as earache, tinnitus, itchiness or vertigo (spinning sensation).
  • What is tinnitus?
    Tinnitus is the term for the sensation of hearing a sound in the absence of any actual external sounds. You may hear different types of sound, for example ringing, buzzing, whooshing or humming. These can be continuous or they can be sporadic. For more specific information on tinnitus, please visit the following link; https://www.tinnitus.org.uk/all-about-tinnitus
  • Are cotton buds safe to use?
    The use of cotton buds can be dangerous for our ear health and hearing for a number of reasons. If cotton buds are inserted too deep into the ear canal, it can cause the perforation of the ear drum, causing pain, tinnitus, or even long-term hearing loss. Repeated use of cotton buds can also increase the risk of an ear infection as the stick can damage the delicate structures within the ear, causing redness and/or bleeding which is then susceptible to infection.
  • What is Microsuction?
    Microsuction is recognised as the gold standard for ear wax removal. A more effective treatment than irrigation, it is a quick, safe and painless procedure which gently sucks the wax from the ear.
  • Diagnosis and Treatment with Tympa Health?
    Thanks to modern technology, Tympa Health treatments and procedures can help to quickly diagnose ear & hearing conditions. Infections as well as excessive and compacted wax can be identified and treated quickly and painlessly at our clinics. During the procedure, high-definition images and videos will be taken.
  • What to expect at your Ear Wax Removal appointment?
    Rest assured that our specially trained clinicians will use the safest method of wax removal to help you hear again. Your wax removal appointment will take around 20 mins. After asking a few questions to get a better understanding of the health of your ears, our clinician will examine your ear canals and ear drums by using Tympa device for this examination. They will record this information to help keep track of any changes in your ear over time. We’ll then talk you through the procedure and show you the equipment that will be used and explain how it works. You’ll need to sign a consent form before we remove any wax from your ears. Once you are happy to go ahead, our clinician will use Tympa otoscope and suction tube to gently remove any wax that’s in your ear. After our clinician has performed the procedure, they will then check the health of your ears and record this information. If we are unsuccessful in removing any wax, we’ll advise you on your next steps.
  • Do I have to soften the ear wax prior to Microsuction?
    It’s important that the wax has been softened to make the procedure as comfortable and effective as possible – so to prepare for your appointment, we’d recommend using olive oil to soften it. A spray known as Earol is ideal for this. Read the instructions leaflet carefully and use for 7-10 days between 2-4 times daily before your appointment. Other sprays or drops are not always suitable and may prevent us from being able to carry out the removal. Your ears might feel more blocked up after using olive oil and might reduce your hearing – this is because the wax will soak up the oil. If you wear hearing aids, avoid wearing them after you put olive oil in your ears as you could damage your hearing aids (which wouldn’t be covered by your warranty). If you experience a foul taste after using olive oil, stop using it as it might be a sign that there is a hole in your ear drum. If this happens, please get in touch with your GP and let us know.
