Ear Wax Removal in Banbury

How does ear wax occur?

Earwax build can be deemed by a few as not a good thing, but on the contrary, it’s arguably a good thing as it’s produced by the ear to clean and protect itself.

However, too much earwax build-up is not a good thing as this can lead to hearing loss, which as everyone knows – isn’t good.

What are the signs THAT you need ear wax removal?

It can be easy and difficult to spot the symptoms of earwax, as you can generally see in your ear if you have a build-up of wax.

But if you can’t see it, sometimes it can blend into general illness. For example, if you have a cough, ringing in the ears, or dizziness, this can get diagnosed as a common cold, however, this can be interpreted wrong as these can also be the symptoms of earwax build up.

Earwax build-up occurs when your ear creates ear wax faster than your body can remove it, and this is due to several reasons.

You could have eczema, bony blockage or it could just be natural that you produce more earwax than the average human being – which is not a bad thing, so there is no need to panic!

Objects which are placed in your ear can also lead to more earwax, but this is more common in children and young people who averagely have no issues with their ear canals.

Earphones are a common device which can cause more earwax to develop, so we advise that you not wear them constantly, but if you place them in your ears often then be sure to give them a clean as the earwax can stick easily onto the material.

If you believe that you are gaining more earwax quite frequently then we strongly suggest that you get in touch with one of our brilliant team, as the quicker we get a look at, the quicker the problem can be fixed.

Earwax build-up is not a major issue, but it can cause an increase in self-consciousness, so to ease your mind – get it treated.

The different types of EARWAX removal

A great thing about earwax is that there are a few ways it can be easily removed without any hassle, so you can ease your mind from any stress.

Ear Drops are one method to remove earwax and it is simple to do too, all you need to do is ask us to add drops in your ear once and then when you’re back home, add them in yourself numerous times a day for a few days. By doing this you will soften the earwax so that it falls out itself.

A more popular method removing earwax in recent years, microsuction is a treatment that is quick and painless. During this procedure, we will use a small device which is like a hoover in a sense, and it sucks the earwax out of your ear.

Another treatment which could be right for you is ear irrigation. An electric pump is used to push water into your ear and wash all the earwax out.

This procedure does a good job at clearing the earwax, however, some people aren’t a fan of the water in their ear, so we highly recommend you tell us any fears you may have about this treatment.
