Excess Ear Wax is a problem

Are you having trouble hearing what people are saying to you? Are you experiencing dizziness, earaches, or tinnitus?

Our highly-trained clinicians are here to help you get back to enjoying everyday life!

What Causes Excessive Earwax Build-up?

Excessive earwax build-up can happen due to various factors. You might naturally be predisposed to have more earwax, or your ear canals might be hairy or narrow. Ageing can also cause wax to harden and make it more difficult to fall out. Inserting hearing aids or earplugs and other objects into your ear can push the wax further inside your ear.

What Are the Symptoms of Excessive Earwax Build-up?

If you have too much earwax, you might experience dizziness, tinnitus, trouble hearing, earaches, or ear infections. If you’re unsure, you can always consult the NHS website for more information.

How do you treat Excess Ear Wax?

There are several treatments available to help with ear wax build-up. Here are some of the most common ones:

  1. Ear drops: Ear drops are available over the counter at most pharmacies. They are designed to soften the wax, making it easier to remove.
  2. Ear irrigation: This is a procedure where warm water is flushed into the ear canal to remove the wax. It’s usually carried out by a healthcare professional.
  3. Manual removal: A healthcare professional can remove the earwax manually using a small, curved instrument called a curette.
  4. Microsuction: This is a procedure where a healthcare professional uses a small suction device to remove the wax.
  5. Endoscopic ear wax removal: This is a relatively new procedure where a tiny camera is used to guide the removal of the earwax.

It’s important to note that you should never try to remove earwax yourself using cotton buds or any other objects, as this can push the wax further into the ear canal and potentially cause harm. If you’re experiencing symptoms of earwax build-up, it’s always best to consult a healthcare professional – or The Local Pharmacy Team.

Ear Microsuction is what we offer at our pharmacies, and it is super effective. Let’s talk a bit about that now…
