Ear Wax Removal Donegal & Sligo
Ear Wax Removal is one of the most common reasons why people visit their GP as it affects your everyday activities.
When your ear canal gets blocked with earwax not just does this lead to hearing loss but very often the client complains of a feeling of fullness in the ear which can be very uncomfortable.
Tinnitus can also be caused by an excess accumulation of earwax in the ear canal, so it's easy to understand why it's a great relief and of such importance to get this earwax removed!
At the North West Hearing Clinic Padraig is highly trained at earwax removal. Either by gentle extraction or irrigation it's a very simple procedure.
Signs & Symptoms of Earwax Buildup
Some people are just simply prone to earwax buildup however, this does not automatically lead to a buildup. Surprisingly one of the most common causes of earwax blockage is actually at-home earwax removal. Using items such as cotton buds, or any other objects in your ear can push the wax deeper into your ear causing a blockage.
If you are a frequent user of earphones you will more than likely suffer from wax buildup because they can prevent the earwax coming out of the ears causing a blockage.
The appearance of earwax can vary from dark brown to light yellow, please note darker colours do not necessarily mean that there is a blockage.
Signs of earwax buildup include the following:
- A ringing or buzzing in the ear also known as Tinnitus
- Sudden or partial loss of hearing
Unremoved earwax buildup can lead to ear infections.
Symptoms of ear infections include:
- Severe ear pain that does not subside
- Drainage wax from your ear
- Persistant odour from your ear
We have now introduced microsuction ear wax removal services to North West Hearing Clinic due to the fact that microsuction is one of the easiest and safest ways to remove ear wax.
What is Microsuction ?
Microsuction ear wax removal is a fast, clean and painless procedure where a microscope and a medical suction device is used to remove ear wax. Microsuction delivers quick results and tends to be much more effective than the traditional methods of ear wax removal.
