    What is Ear Wax?

    Ear wax, scientifically known as “cerumen”, is a natural substance produced by the skin glands within the outer ear canal. Ear wax may not be the most exciting topic, but it plays a crucial role in keeping your ears healthy. Here’s how:

    What Causes Excess Ear Wax?

    • Cleanliness

    Ear wax is your ear’s guardian, stopping bacteria and germs from making their way inside. It’s a natural defence against infections and damage.

    • pH Harmony

    Ear wax maintains the ear’s natural pH balance, keeping the ear canal well-lubricated and irritation-free.

    • Self-Cleaning

    It’s also your ear’s built-in cleaner, fending off bacteria and debris.

    • Insect Repellent

    No one wants insects in their ears. Ear wax acts as a natural insect repellent.

    What are the symptoms of excess ear wax?

    Your body usually does a good job of regulating ear wax production to protect your ears. However, various factors can throw this balance off-kilter. Common culprits for needing ear wax removal in Upminster include:

    • Excessive Headphone or Hearing Aid Use

    Frequent use of headphones or hearing aids can contribute to the buildup of excess ear wax.

    • Narrow Ear Canals

    Individuals with narrower ear canals are more prone to ear wax buildup.

    • Skin Conditions

    Certain skin issues can lead to increased ear wax production.

    • Ear Infections

    Ear infections can trigger heightened ear wax production in response to inflammation.

    • Environmental Factors

    Dusty or dirty surroundings can also lead to more significant ear wax concerns.

    • Genetics, Age, and Lifestyle

    Your genetic makeup, age, and lifestyle choices can all influence your ear wax production.

    • Use of Cotton Buds

    Using cotton buds to clean your ears can exacerbate ear wax buildup by pushing it deeper into the ear canal.

    How do you know if you have excess ear wax?

    Symptoms of excess ear wax include:

    • Ear blockage
    • Earaches
    • Sensation of ear fullness
    • Hearing impairment
    • Tinnitus (ringing or buzzing sounds in the ears)
    • Dizziness
    • Ear itchiness
    • Ear infections

    For those who wear hearing aids, excess ear wax can lead to additional issues such as:

    • Damage to the hearing aid
    • Frequent cleaning requirements for the hearing aid
    • Discomfort or poor fitting of the hearing aid
    • Whistling noises emitted by the hearing aid
