Ear hygiene and earwax removal
The production of ear wax is a completely natural process. Ear wax is produced in the outer part of your ear canal and is present mainly as a protective mechanism. It acts as a natural barrier that prevents dust and bacteria from entering the innermost parts of your ear.
Usually, your ears naturally expel ear wax and debris. However certain conditions accelerate the production of ear wax and it becomes difficult for your ears to expel the ear wax naturally. This can be caused by excess hair in the ear canal, small or narrow ear canals or some people simply produce excess ear wax naturally.
Too much ear wax can cause blockage of your ear and could result in earache, ringing and temporary hearing loss. Ear wax can be removed from your ears in two ways: micro suction and ear irrigation.
Symptoms you may experience if your ears are blocked with wax
Sound distortion (your own voice sounds different)
Feeling of stuffiness or fullness in the ear canal
Unpleasant ear odour
Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
Discharge or liquid oozing from the ears
