WHAT IS EAR WAX AND HOW CAN IT BECOME PROBLEMATIC?

Ear wax is essential as it keeps the ear canal lubricated and acts as a defence mechanism against debris and bacteria helping fight infection. For most people, it does not cause any problems and removes itself naturally. However, an excess of ear wax can result in hearing difficulties and discomfort.

Factors that can lead to excessive ear wax build up include:

  • Overproduction of ear wax
    Utilising cotton buds / Q-tips
    Wearing hearing aids, ears plugs or earphones
    Narrow or damaged ear canals
    Genetics
    Age

Symptoms of accumulation of ear wax include:

  • Ear pain
    Sensation of fullness in the ear (blocked feeling)
    Hearing loss
    Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
    Hearing loss
    Odour or discharge
    Itching

LANARKSHIRE MICROSUCTION EAR WAX REMOVAL - ADVANTAGES OF THE PROCEDURE

There are a variety of methods for ear wax removal. In recent years, microsuction has proved the most popular among patients and has become the ‘gold standard’ for ear wax removal.

When compared to traditional forms of ear wax removal, microsuction is the favoured technique for ear wax removal due to it being:

  • Safer
  • Quicker
  • More efficient / better results
  • Better tolerated and less side effects
  • Cleaner and less mess

EAR WAX REMOVAL BY MICROSUCTION: WHAT TO EXPECT:

Prior to the procedure, it is important that you soften the ear wax by putting 2-3 drops of olive oil or sodium bicarbonate ear drops into the ears, twice daily for 3-5 days prior to your appointment. This ensures the wax is soft and provides the best results following the microsuction procedure.

During the procedure, a comprehensive medical history will be taken and microscopic equipment will be used to examine the inner ear canals and ear drums. A specialist pharmacist from Cleland Pharmacy will use a low pressure suction device to gently extract the ear wax from your ear canal. Using Award Winning Technology from Tympa Health Technologies, the process is painless, non-invasive and takes only a few minutes.

Following the procedure, no further action is required and you can resume all normal activity immediately.

ADVICE TO MAINTAIN GOOD EAR HEALTH FROM OUR EXPERT CLINICIANS:

Excellent ear health is vital for your overall wellbeing with deterioration in ear health and a build up for excessive ear wax leading to hearing loss, increased risk of infection and social isolation.

Our Expert clinicians at Cleland Pharmacy have summarised 4 top tips to maintain good ear health:

  • Keep your ears dry – prolonged exposure to moisture can increase the risk of infections. After showering, bathing or swimming, always tilt your head to allow the water to exit and dry your ears with a towel.
  • Protect your ears from loud noises – exposure to loud noises can harm the delicate ear structures and ultimately result in hearing loss. When in loud areas, use ear protection.
  • Do not use cotton buds / Q tips – these tools can push the wax further into your ears leading to a build up and blockage in the ear canal. Use olive oil ear drops and a professional ear wax removal service such as Cleland Pharmacy Ear Wax Removal Clinic.
  • Arrange periodic ear health check ups – regular check ups, allow ear health issues to be assessed and diagnosed early, ultimately preventing deterioration and allowing prompt treatment. Ear Health Check Ups can be booked with the expert pharmacists at Cleland Pharmacy in Lanarkshire.
