Do your ears feel blocked up and you’re not sure why? Sometimes excess earwax can accumulate and harden in the ear canal and affect your ear health, causing symptoms such as muffled hearing, earaches, dizziness, or tinnitus.

While many people reach for Q-Tips to remove ear wax, this can make things worse and push ear wax further into the ear canal. Don’t risk it, visit a professional who specialises in ear wax removal to remove earwax blockage safely and effectively, so you’ll hear and feel better fast.
For more information on men’s ear wax removal, check out this guide for the best methods to remove excess earwax buildup safely and painlessly.

Signs That You May Need Ear Wax Removal

Most people don’t need to worry about ear wax removal since it usually works its way out of the ears naturally and doesn’t need to be removed with other methods. However, sometimes earwax can build up and affect your hearing and cause other problems, such as:
1. earache
2. tinnitus (ringing in the ear)
3. muffled hearing
4. dizziness

Best Methods for Ear Wax Removal

Visit an Ear Specialist

If an ear wax blockage is affecting your ear health, you should visit an ear specialist for professional ear wax removal. At your appointment, the ear specialist may recommend a variety of options, depending on the level of earwax blockage you are experiencing.

This may include:

· Ear syringing – This method involves using an ear wax syringe to gently spray water or a saline solution into the ear to dislodge the impacted earwax.

· Microsuction – Microsuction is considered the most effective and safest method of earwax removal by the NHS. It involves using a small suction device to gently suction out earwax.
