Signs and Symptoms of Earwax Blockage
If you’re experiencing symptoms such as earache, a feeling of fullness in the ear, decreased hearing, tinnitus (ringing in the ear), itching, or discharge, these can be signs of an earwax blockage.
It’s crucial not to ignore these symptoms, as they can worsen over time and potentially lead to complications such as otitis externa or damage to the tympanic membrane.
When To See a Professional
Attempting to remove earwax at home can be risky and potentially cause harm to your ears.
Common home methods like the use of cotton swabs can push the wax farther into the ear canal, increasing the risk of impaction, infection, or even damage to the eardrum.
Instead, it’s recommended that you consult with our professional team for safe and effective earwax removal.
