What is ear wax?

We are often asked why we have ear wax. It is not as a result of poor hygiene as many people think, but a clever mix of ingredients which have an important role in protecting and cleaning our ears.

In addition to trapping dirt and any creepy crawlies, ear wax lubricates the skin, and provides anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties – ensuring the ear is kept healthy.

Ear wax naturally moves out of our ears. In fact, every time we talk, chew or yawn we are encouraging this process. Whilst many people remain unaffected by ear wax problems, ear wax can be a real issue for some.

So how would you know if you had an ear wax build up if you can’t see it?

The most common symptoms are a blocked sensation, a drop in hearing, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), dizziness and discomfort. The best way to clean the ears is to use a warm washcloth when in the shower, and gently clean the outer ear up to the opening of the ear canal only. NEVER use cotton buds as you could damage your ears. They also may compact the ear wax – making it impossible to come out in the usual way. Also, using cotton buds stimulates the ear canal to produce more wax and exacerbate the problem!

Three methods of wax removal may be used:

  1. Micro Suction Wax Removal
  2. Ear Irrigation using the Pro-pulse Irrigator
  3. Removal of wax deposits using a Jobson Horn Probe

Mr Stephen Neal (RHAD FSHAA) has undertaken training and achieved competency in wax removal and will use best-practice procedures to minimise any risk of harm. However, as with any wax removal procedure even when performed with the upmost care, there is a small risk involved of damage to or infection of the skin of the ear canal or the ear-drum during the procedure.
