Earwax blockage happens when earwax builds up in your ear or hardens over time. Earwax is a natural part of proper ear function. It lubricates, cleans, and protects the ear canal.
Earwax is a yellowish, sticky or hard substance you can sometimes feel when touching the inside of your ear. Too much earwax can be painful or lead to hearing issues and other negative side effects.
Your Raintree Healthcare provider screens you for earwax blockage and can safely remove it to restore your quality of life and prevent complications.
Signs and symptoms of earwax blockage may include:
You might not experience symptoms with earwax buildup, which is why routine screening is important.
Your Raintree Healthcare provider uses a special lighted instrument to view your ears and determine if earwax removal is right for you. If it is, they can perform noninvasive procedures right in the office.
During earwax removal at Raintree Healthcare, your provider uses medical tools to eliminate excess earwax. They use tiny curved instruments, gentle suction, water picks, or water-filled syringes to clear out the wax. Earwax removal is fast, noninvasive, and pain-free without downtime.
Your Raintree Healthcare specialist might recommend earwax-removal medicines, or drops, to soften earwax and prevent future buildup. At-home treatments you can try with your provider’s permission include applying baby or mineral oil to your ear and softening wax with warm water.
Regular earwax removal treatments at Raintree Healthcare can prevent excess buildup and unpleasant symptoms associated with earwax blockage.
Having wax in your ear is normal and natural, and might not require medical intervention. The best way to know if earwax removal is necessary to optimize the health and function of your ear is with an evaluation by your medical provider.
