Let the professionals deal with it
Wax on. Wax off.
A little ear wax is perfectly normal and healthy. However, occasionally ear wax can block your ears. This usually occurs when it has been pushed into the ear canal by a person attempting to remove it themselves. Commonly this is done by cotton buds, hairpins, paper clips or other items people use to try and remove wax.
The most recognizable symptoms of excessive ear wax are partial or total hearing loss, itching, fullness, ringing and occasionally pain. Ear wax should only ever be removed by a fully-trained professional. The ear is an incredibly sensitive organ, and the slightest slip can cause long-term damage, so attempting to remove ear wax yourself is not recommended.
Hearing Works offer an ear wax removal service. The audiologists are trained to remove and manage wax in the ear canal. This includes removing any wax that may be obstructing your ear canal. When it is necessary, the audiologist will refer you to trusted ENT’s for further treatment and follow up after the treatment was completed.
