Ear Wax

What happens?

Image result for ear wax africaEveryone’s ear produces wax. Normally the wax moves slowly to the outside of the ear where it is washed away. But the wax can sometimes build up and block the ear, and this is when it becomes a problem.

Wax covering the eardrum can make it hard to hear. The eardrum is a thin layer of membrane (skin) that stretches across the walls of the ear canal. It transmits sound from outside in the form of vibrations to the inside of the ear.

People who wear hearing aids or use ear plugs are more likely to get problematic ear wax. These can stop the natural flow of ear wax, causing it to build up and harden over time. When this happens, one may try to remove the wax themselves and can poke it further into the ear canal, making the problem worse. The ear might also get damaged in the process.

What are the symptoms?

The wax may be too much that one is unable to hear properly with the ear (or ears) involved.

There could be an ache in the ear particularly when the wax is hardened and improper removal is attempted.

A humming, buzzing or ringing in the ear (tinnitus) may also be present.

A feel of dizziness may occur in some situations.

What treatments work?

Ear syringing

This involves pushing in warm water into the ear using a special syringe and the used water containing dislodged wax collected in a dish held close to the ear. The procedure is repeated several times until all the wax is out. Some ear drops may first be given to soften the wax before syringing.

Ear syringing is effective and isn’t usually painful. But it can be quite uncomfortable and can make one feel dizzy. The procedure may have to be repeated later if it doesn’t work at first.

Other treatments

If one has a hole in their eardrum, or if ear syringing fails, the wax may be removed using some instruments or suction devices.

It is estimated that more than 28 million people in the US have a significant loss of hearing. For the majority of these people, a hearing aid will probably be the best way to improve their hearing. Recent advancements in hearing aid technology mean that modern hearing aids have a high level of sound quality in a very small device. It should be noted that a hearing aid will not restore normal hearing. What it can do is make it easier for the user to detect and interpret sounds. Often someone who is hard of hearing will not notice if someone is trying to speak to them. This is what a hearing aid will help with. Although there are several distinct types of hearing aids on the market today, they all work in a similar fashion. A microphone or receiver picks up sound waves and converts them to an electric signal. This signal is then processed and sent to a speaker, which converts it back to an audio signal. The processing serves to amplify those frequencies of which the user has trouble hearing. Hearing aids are able to allow their user to hear human speech at a comfortable volume. This may require some time to adjust to the new signals the brain receives. Hearing aids are not a perfect solution – they do have their limitations. They will not restore normal hearing, nor will they eliminate background noise. However, they may be adjusted to lessen background noise. New users to hearing aids often complain that their voices sound funny to themselves, and that they are bothered by the relative loud noise from things like refrigerator fans and traffic on the street outside. However, as they have a chance to adapt to their new hearing aid, their brain begins to filter out background noises to a more comfortable level. There are different types of hearing loss. The two main types are conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss. Conductive hearing loss occurs when sound waves cannot reach the inner ear. This can be caused by such things as a buildup of earwax, infection, fluid in the ear, or a punctured eardrum. Sensorineural hearing loss occurs when there is damage to the auditory nerve or hair cells in the inner ear. This damage can be the result of loud noise, injury, infection, a genetic condition or aging. While conductive hearing loss can often be corrected by surgery, sensorineural hearing loss can not.

What will happen to me?

About three out of ten people with problematic ear wax find that the wax goes away on its own after a few days without any treatment. If this doesn’t happen, the wax may then be removed with ear syringing.

The hearing difficulty usually gets better after removal of the wax plug. But if hearing doesn’t improve, more investigations need to be done to find out the cause.
