Don’t Let Lodged Ear Wax Affect Your Quality Of Life

Having earwax lodged in the ear canal can be an extremely uncomfortable experience, so much so that it affects a person’s quality of life. This is even more so when the ear blocks up suddenly. This can happen after a swim when the ear wax soaks up water and expands. Or it can be in a plane when the pressure changes and the ear is unable to equalize.

When this happens, a person’s first instinct is usually to stick his/her finger or an instrument into the ear to try to clear it. This usually pushes the wax even further in or damages the ear canal or even the eardrum. Some people may also try to jump up and down with their heads tilted to one side to dislodge the wax. This seldom works effectively.

Getting A Doctor To Professionally Remove Ear Wax

Those who have experienced this know how absolutely frustrating this can be. Especially when you are on a flight and know that it will be hours before you can see a doctor. Do not let yourself be caught in such situations. It is part of your essential healthcare regime to have your ears checked every so often for ear wax.

Trying to remove ear wax on your own can be dangerous. Getting a non-professional to do it can also be equally risky if not more so. Our ear wax removal service is performed by professionally trained doctors using a powerful microscope and special instruments specifically designed to remove ear wax safely and with absolutely no discomfort.

Ear wax is an accumulation of dead skin from the ear canal, dirt and cerumen produced in the ear. Its purpose is to acts as a protective barrier for the ear. Ordinarily, your ear should be capable of ‘self-cleansing’ by clearing the ear wax out of the ear canal. However, problems arise when your ear is unable to function normally due to a substantial build-up, causing symptoms and discomfort.
