Hearing loss is a common problem amongst people of all ages, but people often put off seeking help when they begin to notice it. We always advise people to seek help for hearing loss as soon as they can because untreated hearing loss can worsen quickly, as well as leading to other conditions such as dementia and depression.
• Earwax, also known as cerumen, is an essential bodily fluid that keeps our ears clean and protects against bacteria. However, a build up of earwax can cause problems with hearing, and people with excessive earwax often experience temporary hearing loss as a result of this. The good news is that the solution is very simple and free in most cases! Book your free earwax removal procedure on our website now.
• Earwax gives an interesting clue to our heritage, with studies showing that people with sticky and wet ear wax tend to be descended from African or European ancestors, while people with dry earwax are descended from East Asia.
• The safest way to remove excess earwax is via irrigation, which involves the use of warm water to flush out the ear canal. It is dangerous to try and remove an earwax blockage yourself at home, as inserting anything such as a cotton bud into the ear canal can risk impaction and make the problem worse. Always seek professional help for this problem.
If you have an issue with your ears, it’s important to consult an Audiologist as soon as possible. We offer free hearing tests, and free earwax removal procedures for those over the age of 50. You should have regular hearing tests as you age so that any changes in your hearing can be picked up and treated quickly. We stock a wide range of hearing aids, including the latest digital styles, and we will be happy to help you to find the best solution for your lifestyle.
