Ear wax? Diminished hearing? Earwax impaction is when earwax builds up enough to cause symptoms. Normally, earwax helps to protect the insides of the ears and prevents injury or infection. But having too much earwax can cause symptoms such as pain and trouble hearing. Young children and older adults are more likely than others to have earwax impaction.
- Avoid using Q-tips as that can worsen the earwax impaction and can potentially damage the ear drums
- Ear Irrigation is one of the most widely practiced forms of wax removal and can also be used for foreign body removal from the ear
- Ear lavage can be safely and easily performed by our expert providers as quick and effective office based procedure
