Ear wax plugs

Specialty of Otolaringology

Earwax are one of the most common causes of hearing loss. In a small number they are beneficial because they protect the ear, preventing bacteria and other microorganisms can penetrate. Some people, however, produce more wax than the ear can take and is not capable of removing remove, which can lead to symptoms such as pain or ringing in the ears, feeling of being plugged or partial hearing loss. For treatment the aim is to soften the wax, which can be achieved with baby oil, commercial drops, glycerine, water or petrolatum; although we must not wipe too hard or often, as the wax helps keep ears protected.
