The Problem With Earwax
Hearing Aid Users can sometimes suffer from a build up of Ear Wax, and without the proper treatment, it may prevent the wearer from getting the most from the hearing system.
At HEARING WALES, it makes sense to us to offer both the provision of Hearing Aids and Ear Wax Removal all under the one roof!
WHAT IS EAR WAX?
Ear wax is a normal, healthy substance that helps to protect our ears from infection. It usually breaks down naturally and falls out of the ears in tiny flakes. If you wear a hearing aid, or have a narrow or curving ear canal, the wax may build up in your ear, causing discomfort, a sensation of fullness or some loss of hearing and you may not get the best results from your hearing aid.
Earwax has antibacterial properties and is slightly acidic. Without it, the skin inside your ear would become dry, cracked, infected or waterlogged and sore. The amount of earwax made changes from person to person. Some people are prone to forming plugs of earwax in their canal which can cause a feeling of fullness and dull hearing. Thicker plugs of wax can also cause tinnitus or mild types of dizziness (vertigo).
To reduce your risk of developing earwax problems, avoid putting objects into your ears, such as cotton buds, hairpins and matchsticks. As well as possibly damaging your ear eardrum or canal, putting things in your ears can also cause the wax to become lodged in your ear canal.
