Why You Might Need Professional Ear Wax Removal

Have you ever experienced dizziness, ear pain, itchy ears, reduced hearing and/or pressure in the ear canal? If you have experienced any of these symptoms, you may benefit from professional ear wax management. This is referred to as cerumen management by hearing care professionals. While some individuals can benefit from using wax removal kits, a consultation with a professional is recommended to ensure it is safe or is the best course of treatment for you. The use of cotton swobs, bobby pins, keys, or other small items should always be avoided, they have the potential to move wax deeper into the ear canal, which can lead to wax impaction or even harm the delicate ear structures. 

But don’t worry, ear wax is completely normal. Everyone has ear wax, it is produced by glands in your ear canal to help trap dust and protect your ears from potential damages. The issue here isn’t ear wax itself, but the quantity and buildup of ear wax. While we all produce ear wax, some of us produce a lot more than others.

Do you need our ear wax removal services? We currently have a select number of locations with providers certified in cerumen management, however appointments are limited at this time. Contact your local clinic to find out if a provider is available, if not we recommend contacting your family doctor or public health provider to get the care you need.
