Ear wax, also known as cerumen is produced naturally by the glands in the ears. To lubricate the ear canals and keep debris such as dust from getting to far down into the ear canal, it typically clears itself from the ears but in some instances can cause a blockage by excessive accumulation.
Symptoms of ear wax blockage include:
tinnitus (noise in the ear)
If a blockage occurs, it may need to be removed carefully. This can be done at your doctor’s office, at home or in the audiology clinic depending on the size and severity of blockage. We can provide recommendations as to seeing your physician, supply you with at home ear wax removal kits or provides management right here in our office.
