How To Get Rid Of Earwax


Earwax is a good thing. It protects the ear and keeps it clean. In most people, earwax does not cause a problem; however in some people, too much earwax can cause problems.  Below find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about what earwax does, when it becomes a problem, how to treat excessive earwax, and much more.

Earwax is produced by glands in the ear canal. Although scientists are still not completely sure why we have earwax, it does trap dust and other small particles and prevent them from reaching and possibly damaging or infecting the eardrum. Normally, the wax dries up and falls out of the ear, along with any trapped dust or debris. Everyone makes earwax, but the amount and type are genetically determined just like hair color or height. Smaller or oddly shaped ear canals may make it difficult for the wax our ears make naturally to get out of the canal. This can lead to wax impactions. This is earwax buildup. An Electric Cordless Earwax Vacuum is what you need.

Symptoms of an earwax impaction include:

  • Decreased hearing

  • Dizziness

  • Ear pain

  • Plugged or fullness sensation

  • Ringing in the ear

  • Cough

More serious symptoms could mean you’ve developed an infection. Watch for:

  • Serious pain

  • Drainage from the ear canal

  • Itching 

  • Odor coming from the ear

  • Fever

When to Seek Medical Care for Earwax

See your doctor if you think you may have any symptoms of an earwax impaction. Other conditions may cause these symptoms and it is important to be sure earwax is the culprit before trying any home remedies.

Go to the hospital if:

  • You have a severe spinning sensation, loss of balance, or inability to walk

  • You have persistent vomiting or high fever

  • You have sudden loss of hearing

Earwax Buildup Causes

Blockage, or impaction, often occurs when the wax gets pushed deep within the ear canal. Earwax blockage is one of the most common ear problems doctors see.

The most common cause of impactions is the use of cotton swabs (and other objects such as bobby pins and rolled napkin corners), which can remove superficial wax but also pushes the rest of the wax deeper into the ear canal. Hearing aid and earplug users are also more prone to earwax blockage.

Preventing Earwax Buildup

Earwax blockage can often be prevented by avoiding the use of cotton-tipped swabs (like Q-tips) and other objects that push the wax deeper into the ear canal. An Electric Cordless Earwax Vacuum is the answer.
